KORBEL and Crafts and Coasters, Oh my!

There’s nothing quite like the crisp pop of an uncorked bottle of KORBEL. So keep the cork-popping fun going by crafting a few coasters made from this material as well. Cork coasters are super easy to make. Just grab a few circles of this material from your local craft store. Then get decorating. And once you’re finished adding in some colorful patterns, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind set of coasters to impress all your friends. Learn how to make these coasters below. Then keep reading for a delicious cocktail recipe that will have you eager to use your new accessories ASAP!

DIY Cork Coasters


  • Cork coasters
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scotch tape


  • Place strips of tape across the top of each coaster in a fun, geometric pattern.
  • The tape will keep paint out of these areas, so the more tape you use, the more unpainted cork you’ll have on your coasters.
  • Once you have your patterns laid out, paint the uncovered areas. While you can use as many colors as you want, we’d suggest a maximum of three different colors.
  • Let your handiwork dry, and once you’ve done so, carefully peel off the tape to reveal your new, colorful coasters!

KORBEL Sugar Cocktail


  • 1 sugar cube
  • 2-3 dashes bitters
  • 1 ounce KORBEL Brandy
  • 4-6 ounces KORBEL Brut
  • Orange slice
  • Maraschino cherry


  • Add sugar cube to bottom of champagne flute and then pour bitters over top.
  • Add KORBEL Brandy. Then KORBEL Brut.
  • The sugar cube should dissolve, adding a bit more sweetness to the drink.
  • Garnish your cocktail with an orange slice and cherry
