The past two years have been good to hard-drinking disciples. Pope Francis famously declared wine a necessity in 2016, and former Pope Benedict XVI celebrated his 90th birthday with a beer and bretzels in August, 2017. Only one beer in recorded history received an actual blessing from the pope.
When you think of Easter, you think of a Sunday afternoon with egg hunts, an early dinner, and endless amounts of festive candy. Does it get any better? It does, actually — by doing all of the above with cocktails, of course! Easter Sunday is one of our favorite days of the year, especially because its arrival […]
It isn’t Easter without the classic chocolate bunny, but now that you’re older and wiser, why not give those bunnies a bit of an update by filling them with a shot of whiskey! Other liquors will work here as well – Baileys would also be delicious – but we love the way whiskey seems to […]
Hams, and lambs, and ducks, oh my! It’s officially Easter week, and after preemptively gorging on jelly beans and cream-filled eggs, it’s time to find wines for the real Easter feast.

Especially when you’re trying to pretend like you don’t know where that obvious bright blue plastic egg is while some pasteled kid runs around screaming for another jelly bean fix. So, yeah.

But just because you’re all grown up, that doesn’t mean you have to deny yourself a fun-filled basket. And since you’re an adult, that basket can actually include adult things, and […]
One of the things we believe in here at VinePair is that you can pair wine with anything. So with Easter around the corner, we decided to challenge ourselves to find two wines that cut nicely through the intense sugary flavor of both Peeps and Cadbury Creme Eggs.

Whether you’re celebrating with friends or just trying to get through a family meal, one thing is abundantly clear: you’re going to need booze.
