New Day Cleveland Gets 'Happy' for the Holidays

Did you catch Happy Hour Collection on 'New Day Cleveland?' 


The lovely folks over at 'New Day Cleveland' were nice enough to invite me back.

This time I shared some holiday gift giving ideas, stocking stuffers and an easy and elegant Prosecco Cocktail (see recipe below).

If you're looking for the perfect gift for the person who has it all or is just plain hard to buy for we have great gift ideas.

We can help you make up a gift box/basket tailored to fit your loved ones cocktail style. How about an Old Fashioned basket for the whiskey drinker or a premium Gin & Tonic gift box. Maybe you were thinking of getting Moscow Mule mugs? We carry the absolute best copper mugs (and copper bar accessories). Copper mugs plus Pickett's Ginger Beer syrup and you have the perfect Moscow Mule Basket.

Visiting friends and family over the holidays? Instead of bringing a bottle of wine, why not grab a crafted cocktail mixer? We carry a variety of cocktail mixers to make mixing up a cocktail a breeze.

If you'd like to learn more about Happy Hour Collection CLICK HERE or stop on into the shop. 

We'd love to help you put together a gift and we'd love to meet you.

For upcoming events CLICK HERE. You can also sign up for our email list.

I hate spam emails, so I can promise you that you'll receive only a few emails a month with news on the latest products, upcoming tastings & events, you'll also receive a cocktail recipe (or two). 

It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle, especially this time of the year.

Make sure to take time out to really enjoy the Holiday season, family, friends, the new Star Wars movie ;) 

Live in the moment . . . laugh, have fun and make wonderful memories with loved ones.

 Those after all, are the gifts that last a lifetime.



Holiday Sparkler Cocktail

Holiday Sparkler Cocktail

Holiday Sparkler Cocktail

For quick, easy and elegant entertaining this Holiday season consider mixing up a 'Holiday Sparkler'

4 1/2 oz Prosecco

1/2 oz Hudson Standard Cassis Berry Shrub

2-3 dashes Dram Apothecary Wild Mountain Sage Bitters

Fresh Rosemary Sprig for garnish

In a Chilled Champagne flute, add Prosecco first, then add Cassis Berry Shrub. 

Add your bitters, and rosemary sprig. Give a light stir with the rosemary and impress your guests with this lovely Crafted Champagne Cocktail! Here's a toast to a wonderful holiday season and and even better New Year! Cheers! 

**If you don't have Prosecco on hand, you can easily follow the recipe above and substitute the Prosecco for 1 1/2 oz vodka and 2 oz sparkling water. 

Here's the alternate recipe,  Fill Shaker with ice, add Cassis Berry Shrub and vodka. Shake until chilled (approx 15-20 seconds), strain into a rocks glass filled with ice (we prefer an ice ball for slower dilution), add seltzer/sparkling water and bitters. Serve & enjoy!

Thank you for visiting & Happy Holidays


All the best,
