Revival of the Elegant Way to do Drinks

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

It seems we have gone full circle when it comes to indulging in our favourite glass of wine or delicious cocktail. We are now investing in cocktail cabinets, drink trolleys and elegant pieces which were prevalent in a time gone by. Our love for Downton Abbey with their beautiful portrayal of the finer things in life, may have encouraged us to be more elegant in our choice of drink ware. Or we simply enjoy a touch of luxury and the revival of the elegant way to do drinks. Cocktails are fun and enchanting.  Their fusion of flavours, gorgeous colours and artistic finishes create more than just a drink, they create an experience.  Cocktails can not be placed in something ordinary, they need to stand out from the crowd.  These lavish glasses with their assorted shapes will make you the ultimate hostess as well as adding something special to your drinks.
