Cook's Notes

Wooden skewers dressed up with gaily colored paper decorations turn white-wine sangria into a celebratory drink.

To Make Skewers: Cut two-tone crepe paper into 3 1/2-by-1 1/2-inch lengths; use scissors to fringe one long edge of the paper, cutting to within 1/8 inch of the opposite edge; place one end of the skewer on the uncut edge, and secure with an adhesive dot; wrap paper tightly around the skewer's end and add another adhesive dot; gently separate and fluff fringe.
