If you follow along with me on Instagram Stories, you’ve probably seen that Michael and I make cocktails at home quite often on the weekends. Michael is definitely the mix master. My favorite cocktails on his menu are the classic Moscow Mule and a Whiskey Smash. His go-to is an Old Fashioned.
Marcella Kriebel Prints
When my friend Elise introduced me to a local DC artist, Marcella Kriebel, I knew I had to get my hands on a few of her cocktail prints to hang above our bar cart. I have the Old Fashioned, Moscow Mule, and Gin and Tonic prints. I’m planning on using Framebridge to have them framed, but I wanted to share them with you as a “before” in case there’s someone on your Christmas list that would love them as much as I do!
Marcella does other food and drink illustrations too. I personally love the fruit and vegetable illustrations – how cute would a set of these lemon prints be in the kitchen?!
An Easy Cocktail Recipe with Be Mixed
When Michael isn’t around to play bartender, I used to just resort to opening up a bottle of red wine and calling it a night. However, I was recently introduced to Be Mixed, a cocktail mixer company with a slogan that I can get on board with …. “You’re Better than Vodka Soda.” The mixers are all-natural, zero-calorie, and sugar-free. The ladies at Be Mixed, kindly sent over all three of their mixer flavors for me to try: Cucumber Mint, Margarita, and Ginger Lime.
The mixers are super easy to use – for one drink all you need is one mini bottle of the mixer and one shot of liquor. I combined one mini bottle of the Ginger Lime with one shot of vodka, added ice, stirred, poured it into a glass, and added a lime slice garnish. The drink was delicious and so easy!
Pairing one of the four pack of mixers with a nice bottle of liquor would make a great hostess gift this holiday season! Have you tried out Be Mixed?
I received the Marcella Kriebel Illustrations and the Be Mixed mixers as gifts. However, this post is not sponsored. As always, all thoughts are my own.
