Inspiring Celebrations Since 2006


Quick Jump To » Comments
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!

  2. Blue Orchid Designs says:

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

  3. Blue Orchid Designs says:

    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. :)

  4. tiffany jones says:

    Vodka + 7Up, garnished with limes!

  5. Rita says:

    I always love a good Mimosa!

  6. Anonymous says:

    Strawberry Daquiries (regular or virgin!) and Green Appletinis are my favorites.

  7. DanielaT says:

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

  8. star says:

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. Accessories says:

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

  11. Yogi says:

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

  12. megan s says:

    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.

  13. Funky Finds says:

    oh man! talk about a cool barware!

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. Elle says:

    I love “Magic” Mojitos! They’re made with cotton candy instead of regular sugar. Yum!

  17. Outstanding Occasions says:

    Wow! What vivacious glassware! Love everything! Well, I don’t get to drink too much right now with a 4 month old, but my favorite drink is a classic…margarita on the rocks. Okay, is it bad that it is 6 a.m. and I am now craving a margarita?
    (I started a Pick Me Giveaway series this week. Giving things away is so fun:)

  18. Joey F says:

    I LOVE limoncello mixed with seltzer water…SO fresh!! And I LOVE CocktailVibe—I’d be the most popular hostess for miles around!

  19. bbchitown says:

    My favorite martini is the capriani (not sure I spelled that right) but it is a delicious twist with tons of lime, sugar, and mint. So refreshing and would EXCELLENT in that glassware! Pick me!

  20. Oh Happy Blog! says:

    I would have to say that depending on the bartender… I love a good dirty martini… but will sometimes fall back on a gin and tangueray with extra lime…. and if I have too much fun over those- a bloody mary for brunch the next day…

    what lovely pieces… all of them!

  21. Dana V. says:

    Oh, girl, I could rock a razzmopolitan right about now. Except for the fact that it’s not even 10 am. Detail, details…

  22. Sequana says:

    Anything with kahlua in it..*S*

  23. Rosie says:

    Hands down it’s the Journeyman. A signature drink from one of the awesome bartenders at Saddles steakhouse in Sonoma. Two parts Grey Goose, two parts Patron, and one part sweet and sour. Sounds scary but it’s super super yummy!!

  24. Cass says:

    Strawberry margarita all the way!

  25. Jo says:

    I’ve never gotten too exotic in my cocktail choices – I’ll usually just order a Cape Cod or a Screwdriver or a Midori Sour, etc. However, my new husband’s family is Brazilian and I’ve recently been introduced to the delicious (but potent) caipirinha.

  26. Michelle B says:

    Margarita, summer slush or B-52 – delish!

  27. Jess says:

    Mojitos. I made my first one this summer and have been addicted ever since. Well, I mean, I don’t think I have a drinking problem. :) I just like them.

  28. traci says:

    i’m fairly classic when it comes to cocktails, let the quality of the spirit speak for itself. martini all the way. if i’m feeling crazy, add a twist. :) i love mojitos, too, but only if i’m ACTUALLY in Cuba.

  29. SweetPea says:

    I love Vodka lemonades and margaritas with extra salt! Mmmm…will have to go to happy hour today.

  30. Alena says:

    Oh wow, I simply must have those cocktail shakers! I love classic barware with a modern twist.

    My current favorite drink is a Dark N Stormy (ginger beer and dark rum), but I also enjoy mojitos, margaritas, and sidecars (although it’s hard to find a properly made sidecar…)

  31. Brooke says:

    I just had a Singapore Sling the other evening and loved it!!! On the cocktail menu was Thug Passion. I’m trying that one next.

  32. liz says:

    I can’t pick a favorite cocktail – though I do second whoever said you can’t go wrong with a classic margarita – but when I’m out and about, I love opting for any drink that’s pink.

  33. angbrimwil says:

    what fun stuff… time for a party.

  34. Weazie says:

    Mmmm…Mojitos are definitely my drink of choice. I recently had a Pomegranate Vojito at a restaurant. Correction, I had THREE. They were so yummy!

  35. cyndi & lee says:

    Depending on the time of day, my favorite would either be an extra spicy bloody mary (before noon) or a classic “on the rocks” margarita (after noon). Either way…YUM!

  36. Mr. Wrong says:

    Definitely a Vodka Sour with a splash of soda water to give it some fizz.

  37. Melanie says:

    Most definitely a rasberry mojito, which would look twice as delicious in that tall bubble glass!

    I could really go for a cocktail right about now…

  38. Johanna T. says:

    I had my favorite drink on our honeymoon in Las Vegas, it was the Bellagio cocktail. So good. Not sure what was in it, but went back to get more several times.

  39. Anne says:

    One of my all time favorite drinks is the watermelon mojito at Katsuya in LA. Served with a big piece of watermelon and a cucumber. Yum!
