Step 1

 Open GalleryLaurie March Champagne Glitter-RimReady the Agave and Glitter Pour about ½” of agave nectar into a bowl. Agave nicely coats the rim without being too heavy. Then place a flat empty plate next to the bowl of agave and tap out enough edible glitter to coat the surface of the plate. Tip: Search craft stores and online bakers’ supply to purchase edible glitter.

Drip Plate  Continue holding the flute upside down and place it on a flat surface. Leave each flute on the plate for a few minutes. This will take care of almost all of the excess syrup.

Glitter Your Glass  Hold the champagne glass at an angle and gently roll the outside of the flute around the bowl of glitter. Tap off any excess glitter. Tip: Edible glitter is very fine and gives off a ton of sparkle. A thin layer is all that’s needed.

Itty Bitty Bows   To take your holiday jazz to the next level, take a tiny bow and fasten it around the stem of the flute.  Metallic colors add sophistication! Tip: Clean up any glitter that falls outside the lines with a dry cotton swab. Gently drag the cotton swab over runaway glitter and whisk away.

Pour The Bubbly  Hold flute at an angle. Carefully fill ¾ of the flute with champagne or sparkling wine. Tip: If you’ve got shaky hands, pour champagne into a measuring cup with a lip first – and use that to pour into glittered glassware.
