End-of-Summer Bucket List
Five things to do before summer ends
Don’t let the calendar fool you—while we may already be halfway through August (say what?!), there’s still so many ways you can make the most out of this summer! To keep the joy coming, Cupcake Vineyards is inviting you to choose your joy with our first-ever Summer of Joy sweepstakes through Labor Day. The sweepstakes features over 200 daily and weekly prizes spanning 10 categories including, “Joy of Food”; “Joy of Relaxing”; “Joy of Travel”; “Joy of Film” and “Joy of Camping”—plus one grand prize of $50,000 (winner announced on September 6th).
While the season may be coming to an end, there’s no reason to say goodbye to the summer fun yet! This summer can still be your season. Take advantage of these last few weeks: throw on some shorts, grab your sunscreen, and let’s check off some items on our end-of-summer Bucket List.
1. Sip a Summer-Inspired Wine Cocktail
Our recipe page has tons of great options to choose from! The Cupcake Sorbet Float is the perfect summer sipper while you escape the heat. All you need is a bottle of Cupcake Pinot Grigio and a quart of your fav sorbet (we recommend raspberry, orange, or lemon). Add a scoop (or two, or three!) of sorbet to your glass and float with Cupcake! Saving a recipe is also one of many ways to enter our Summer of Joy sweepstakes—easy peasy!
2. Glamp from Home
Dreaming of that Glamping trip for 2 to Joshua Tree? While you’re waiting for your weekly chance to win in the “Joy of Camping”, break out the tent and the air mattress to glamp at home! Gather up your softest and coziest pillows and toss up some string lights for an insta-worthy retreat. Most importantly, roast some s’mores with dark chocolate to pair with Cupcake Chardonnay under the stars—talk about a staycation!
3. Watch an Outdoor Movie
Calling all film buffs & cinema-lovers! Create your own outdoor movie night in the comfort and privacy of your backyard. Whip out the projector to play your fav Rom-Com, grab your popcorn and a chilled bottle of Cupcake Butterkissed Chardonnay. To make it even easier, enter to win the “Joy of Film” and have a daily opportunity to win an HD outdoor movie projector!
4. Host your own Wine Tasting
Didn’t have the time to make it our to your favorite winery this summer? Make up for it by hosting your own wine tasting with your summer squad! What better way to spend a sunny day than sipping through some white wines? Explore our wines through the Summer of Joy for additional entries to the sweepstakes! Take your tasting outside to enjoy the weather, try food and wine pairings if you want to feel real official.
5. Take a Self-Care break
We know how important self-care is, the joy of relaxing is one that is undeniable. What better way to end the season than treating yourself to a day at the spa! Looking for a quicker fix? Pamper yourself with a soothing face mask and a bubble bath while sipping Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc. Don’t forget: the Summer of Joy sweepstakes offers daily opportunities to win a 1-year Thera Box subscription for a dose of at-home self-care all year long!
