Love cocktails? Love shopping? Love contemporary style? Then you should find today’s Surprise Giveaway worthy of a “Cheers!”.

CocktailVibe – a hip website featuring loads of contemporary barware – is generously offering up $100 shopping sprees on their website to TWO lucky HWTM readers! On CocktailVibe, you’ll find everything from funky glassware & shakers to hip serving trays and home decor – and you can spend your winnings however you like!

In addition to cool products, CocktailVibe also features a “vibe on location” section that highlights great bars and cocktail venues around the globe – as well as an entire section on cocktail trendspotting. And I personally love the explanation they give (on their “about us” page) – as to why they find the cocktail so facinating: “…Perhaps it’s the fact that cocktailing is an activity that involves people, conversations, depth and overall good times. There’s nothing better than getting together with friends and family, mixing a concoction of choice, sitting back, and relaxing.” I couldn’t agree more!

How to enter:
Post a comment here and tell us what YOUR favorite cocktails or mocktails are – whatever you like to make at home or what you’re most apt to order when you’re out. It will be interesting to hear what drinks are most popular these days… Also, please remember to use your blogger login or a name we can easily identify you with if you win.

Giveaway ends Wednesday, Sept 12 at midnight PST – so make sure to post your comment before then, and this time next week you could be hosting cocktail hour at your place with a bunch of new goods! ;)

even with all the new & fancy cocktail recipes out there – I don’t think anything could ever beat a “regular” margarita on the rocks – with salt of course!

my fave is the striped tumbler with the lime wedge (bottom right of first photo set), but they are all cute!

typed too quickly. :) my fave girly cocktail would have to be mango margaritas, otherwise I’m a long-island iced tea girl, and most recently, mojitos. :)

Mimosa for me is the way to go. I’m not a nightlife person, so brunch drinks do the trick!

my favorite i’ve only had once. i was at a bar in times square and it was a couple of weeks before christmas. i believe the drink was called “rudolph the red nosed reindeer”…..hehe…cute name right? anyway, it tasted like cinnamon and apples….it was amazing! and one of those dangerous drinks too. too good to be alcoholic. mmmmm…too bad it was seasonal.

mama k SAYS:

When I’m out it’s a mojito but it has to be a quality rum or a Long Island Iced Tea. I also love margaritas on the rocks, but then I found out how many calories there are. Yikes! I’ll stick with the Mojito from here on out.
When I’m home it’s simple like a rum and coke or Malibu Rum and Cranberry or vodka and Cranberry.

Lemon Drop Matinis all the way! They are super delicious, especially with a little sugar on the rim.

I love, a tart Pome-tini! They are fantastic, and pomegranite is suppose to be really good for you!

I love anything mango right now and I found a killer bar near my house that makes mangotinis. They also make a great pometini. I need to get recipies for both and make them at home.

Lauren SAYS:

If I trust the place or person making my drink to do it well, then I love margaritas. But my old standby is just bourbon with a tiny little bit of 7-up to cut the sharpness! mmmm…now I’m wishing that it wasn’t 9am and I could have one!

Matt Von Boozestein SAYS:

My favorite cocktail right now is a Pimms martini. I use two parts gin, 1 part pimms, and garnish with a cucumber slice. It’s jolly good.
