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! ;)

I don’t like anything too sweet, so my favorite cocktail, especially in the summer, is a Salty Dog. It’s vodka and grapefruit juice with a salted rim. Yum! LOVE the Cocktail Vibe web site — how fun!! Would love, love, love to win some fun things from there!

Lindsan SAYS:

Just one? I have to pick just one? Uh … man, that is hard! I mean, there’s Manhattan, Vodka Martini, Mojito, Cosmopolitan … the list could go on and on. :D

But I have to say that the best one I have ever tasted was an Old Cuban at hotel Skt Petri in Copenhagen. An Old Cuban is a Mojito that is topped off with champagne. Here’s the recipe:
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1 1/2 ounce rum (Bacardi 8 Anejo)
2 dashes Angostura bitters
6 mint leaves
2 ounces champagne (Veuve Clicquot)

The only word for it? Heaven!

I love apple martini but can’t say no to simple vodka and cranberry juice. Hurricane also is one of my fave as it brings back wonderful memories from New Orleans I share with my husband when we were dating.

I can’t really pick a favourite. Maybe margaritas, although I don’t order them when I’m out because they’re usually too sweet.

sarahbeth SAYS:

I do mojitos at the Cuban in town,or from my garden when the mint is growing. Or a dark and stormy…Bermudian ginger soda and Goslings dark rum. Mujib makes the best ones at Zoey’s….a pretty glass is good, but I can do with a coffee mug if I have to.
