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! ;)

    I love an appletini!
    Very refreshing and delicious

  2. jenannschultz says:

    I make a killer apple pie margarita. With a cinnamon and sugar rim! Love!

  3. Adrienne says:

    I’m still really loving mojitos – they’re so refreshing. Obviously great when it’s warm out, but I can even appreciate them on cooler days!

  4. mjwserzan says:

    I’m a fan of Midori Sours or anything else with melon liqour.

  5. Micaela says:

    I’ll take a margarita in the vienna rocks glass please!

  6. Meredith says:

    I love Mojitos and bellinis! The oh so chic glasses from CocktailVibe will have me sippin’ in style!

  7. Beulah Sorensen says:

    I am still into mojitos–I get the mint from our backyard!

  8. Ashley says:

    A local restaurant near me has the most AMAZING Lemon Cheescake Martinis! SO amazing!!

  9. Kristin Kookamonga says:

    Caipirinha – best tasting, most potent cocktail ever.

    Cachaça+limes+sugar= delicious

  10. westy says:

    Love those Tuscan lemontinis!
    Lemon/mint iced tea w/lemoncello.

  11. Hol&J says:

    I like having a Long Island Iced Tea in the summer, and something I haven’t had in a while is a Cherry Vodka Sour.

  12. BuescherBlog says:

    I’m definitely loving mojitos. Not only are they cool and refreshing, but they are great with and without rum, so I can drink them each day without guilt. Plus they look so pretty in a variety of classes, with the subtle green color of the limes and mint leaves. It also helps that mint grows like a weed, and I have a ton of it growing in my garden. Can’t let it go to waste, right?

  13. techangel says:

    I love khaula and cream. It’s really strange, since I’m not a big fan of coffer or milk. However, I find myself really craving this drink, must be all the sugar! I am also a big fan of any type of daiquiri. You find that you really miss those frozen drinks when you go somewhere like Paris and they don’t know what a frozen daquiri is!

  14. lace says:

    I am definately a non-cocktail person. I am a more of a juice person. I love pomegrant juice.

  15. dianne v says:

    cape cods are probably my favorite cocktail, both in the bars and at home – just cranberry juice, vodka and a twist of lime. a vodka tonic or mojito would be a close 2nd… especially if i’m wearing something that could be stained by the cranberry! ;)

  16. *j says:

    normally i dislike olives – but i just looove a good dirty vodka martini :) which would be even more fabulous in that glassware!

  17. Katie says:

    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!

  18. Mar from LA says:

    soo many!!! but the classics are the classics…can’t ever go wrong with a regular margarita on the rocks!!! Yum!!!

  19. sharon.g says:

    my favorite cocktail of the moment is mojitos. they are so fresh and crisp. fresh lime is one of my favorite flavors ever!!!! how great would those flecks of green mint look in one of those great cocktail glasses!!

  20. 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!

  21. aBookworm says:

    Cuban mojito is my personal fave. It’s sooo sweet – just what I with my sweet tooth crave :-)

  22. staceyn says:

    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.

  23. Tracey says:

    7&7 is the devil.

  24. Jeanette F. says:

    I love Washington Appple’s! Such a girly drink, but it was my first drink in Las Vegas so it has a special place in my heart :-) I’d love to win!

  25. Natalie H says:

    Ooh my favorite cocktail is definitely an extra dirty vodka martini with bleu cheese stuffed olives…yum! Love the stuff CocktailVibe has to offer – very unique.

  26. ikkinlala says:

    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.

  27. 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.

  28. 1357911dc says:

    A caipirinha in their site’s gorgeous Paris High Ball glass would suit me just fine! yum!

  29. Julie says:

    Love the champagne glasses . . . all of their products are SO pretty. Thanks for the giveaway.


  30. kailani says:

    I love strawberry margaritas. They’re my favorite!


  31. kristie S. says:

    Nothing beats a good dirty martini. Extra olives please!!!

  32. jamie aka socialite shops too much says:

    I love virgin strawberry daiquiris! I wish I could have them ready made for me EVERY day!

  33. Mary says:

    Margaritas and Dirty Martinis are my favs.

  34. Elle Foxy says:

    A colorful mango margarita with freshly sliced mangoes and a spring of mint on the side! J’adore!

  35. Lulu says:

    What a fun giveaway!

    My most favorite drink in the world is an Amaretto Sour! I love the sour mix…

  36. JENNIFER says:

    My Fave is a Bloody Mary classic yet the taste varies depending on what part of the country you are in.

  37. suburban prep says:

    I am not really an alcohol drinker. I do like the orange juice and sparkling wine.
    And I love the combination of ice tea and lemonade and Arnold Palmer.
    I went to Trader Joe’s to get the Tea and Lemonade combo they sell as a special treat for my b-day (9/10).

  38. Laura @ Laura Williams' Musings says:

    I don’t drink alcohol, but I do like the mock margaritas… no booze in them. Works for me.

    I blogged this contest at: Wednesday Edition of Contests Galore
