Baby it’s cold outside… so why not cozy up to the fire with loved ones and a unique cocktail in hand?! With all the family get-togethers, secret Santas, and rendez-vous under the mistletoe, it’s a great season to show off your mixology skills. As a frequent party hostess, I make sure that every event has a signature cocktail to go along with the night. Not only is it a fun way to incorporate a theme, it also serves as a memorable conversation starter for your guests. That’s why I was thrilled to team up with Libbey Glass for their #CelebrateThis campaign to create a drink recipe to match the holiday season. If you don’t know much about Libbey, you’ll be happy to know that their stemware is American made. The company is the top glassware manufacturer in the Americas and one of the largest tableware suppliers in the world. Best of all they have a wonderful philosophy – every occasion, big and small, is an opportunity to celebrate life. Cheers to that, my friends! So naturally, I was thrilled for the chance to team up with them to create a scrumptious drink to match their Libbey Perfect Signature Stemware Collection. Fancy a winter-inspired cocktail, anyone?! Since I received the company’s gorgeous Brandy glasses right before the holiday season, I thought it only right to create a signature drink that any party host could recreate. Whether it’s a family Christmas party or the office’s end-of-year soiree, our unusual recipe is sure to knock everyones’ socks off. With pine and cinnamon infused simple syrup, averna liqueur, and brandy it’s like a forest in a cup. Yes, I know that this sounds a bit unconventional, but trust me it is delicious! And with the risk of such unexpected ingredients come great rewards… so, whip out your cocktail shaker and polish those Libbey Perfect Signature glasses, it’s time for a Woodland Brandy Cocktail!
