it’s perfect for so many places, spaces and stuff — the desk / office, kitchen, even tools.

for my friends who love to garden, spending time outdoors—or is this one for me? it’s also tempting to
stick a candle in them and do the Chianti bottle with wax drippings thing…hmmm…

ever since they were photographed in the kitchen holding cookbooks, I’ve been wanting them for all my foodie-friends—who doesn’t think everything is better with bacon?

While the holidays are filled with the aroma of peppermint and pinecones, I prefer my cocktails to stay sweet and fruity with the help of my new cocktail shaker.

Entertaining extraordinaire and blogger, Camille Styles, created the quintessential party libation—the Hibiscus Tea Fizz—which is perfect for this soiree season.

Check out her new book, Entertaining: Inspired Gatherings & Effortless Style for more style tips and recipes!

Ingredients:
1 750 ml bottle sparkling wine, Champagne or prosecco
1 C vodka
½ C honey
2 hibiscus-flavored tea bags
24 blackberries, fresh
Makes 8 cocktails

Directions:
1. In a pitcher, combine the vodka and tea bags. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours and then discard the tea bags. Refrigerate the tea-infused vodka until cold.

2. For each cocktail, muddle 2 blackberries with 1 or 2 teaspoons honey in a cocktail shaker—make it more or less sweet based on preference—add 1 ounce tea-infused vodka and 1 teaspoon cold water, then shake vigorously for 30 seconds.

3. Strain into a flute to the halfway mark then fill the glass with sparkling wine, Champagne or prosecco. Garnish with a blackberry and serve.

An amazing way to warm up any room this holiday season—give this textured, cozy throw as a gift to friends or family, or keep it for yourself!

Personally, I would pair this throw with neutral colored pieces to brighten up any space, as well as use it to balance any brightly-colored room.  Use it in living room for chilly nights, draped on a sofa arm, or as a throw for the foot of bed.

The best way to stay warm in the cold winter months, this throw can also transition into spring and summer months as a picnic blanket.
