Kick Back and Relax with a Summer Cocktail

2 Jul

The long 4th of July weekend is finally here and I plan to kick back and relax. Are you doing any summer entertaining?

We have a family get-together planned this weekend and are looking forward to a few days away and doing not too much! But I did want to try a new summer cocktail. I’m not a big sweet drink person, but I love mint and since I’m growing it in my backyard, I’m going to clip a bunch of it and bring this great recipe with me so we can all try it!

This classic cocktail from Cuba is packed with fresh mint, lime juice, and rum and topped with club soda. Serve it in style in our Maestro Deluxe Highball Glassware.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons white sugar
4 sprigs fresh mint
1 fluid ounce club soda
1 lime, halved
2 fluid ounces light rum
1 1/2 cups ice
2 fluid ounces club soda
1 sprig fresh mint

Directions:

Muddle sugar and mint with soda water in pint glass. Squeeze both halves of lime into the glass leaving one hull in the mixture. Add rum, stir, and fill with ice. Top with club soda.

Garnish with a mint sprig.

I find a lot of really delicious recipes and inspiration on AllRecipes.com and recommend you do too!

Happy 4th and be safe.

Best wishes,

Sophisticated Outdoor Entertaining with Disposable Placemats

11 Jun

20160608-placematsWith summer here now, we love it when we can enjoy our backyard.  Between the flowers in the garden, some fun music and great food, a relaxing time can be had by all.  Just a little BBQ, salad and some iced drinks or wine, and the day is complete.

To make things picture perfect and for easy entertaining, this summer try some disposable heavy weight paper or durable laminated placemats!  There are so many patterns and styles and they are so pretty.

Our wide range of designs ensures you can find the right placemat for every occasion. From lemons and flowers to confetti and hearts, you’ll find perfect designs for general entertaining, birthday celebrations, kids parties and more.

You’ll get a ton of compliments and they work so much nicer than a table cloth, especially on table with an umbrella stand in the middle. And with a personal imprint or monogram, they will bring your entertaining to the next level. They add the finishing touch to any special event and make clean-up a breeze!

To add a few more easy entertaining elements, consider a great set of personalized plastic plates, custom cocktail napkins, or  disposable cups.   Also, our Tervis Tumblers are shatterproof and great for outdoor entertaining.

Enjoy the summer weather and make your entertaining easy and stylish this season!

Best wishes,

Renee
