Winter Cocktail and $20 Crate&Barrel gift card giveaway! *CLOSED

**CLOSED--winner posted here!!

Mmm…cocktails.

I love them.

This is mainly because I really don’t *gasp* like wine.

But make me a cosmopolitan or a sex on the beach and I’ll love you forever.

I was glad when PartnersHub contacted me about posting a widget on how you can discover the best winter cocktail. I mean, yum!

Check out the widget presented by Robb Report:




You can take a quiz to discover your winter cocktail, learn about liquor facts, find a way to give winter cocktails a special twist, and, one of the best parts in my opinion, to see some awesome cocktail recipes!


Here’s one that sounds amazing:

Spring Fever

Ingredients:

• 3/4 oz lemon juice
• 3/4 oz mango syrup
• 1 1/2 oz pineapple juice
• 2 oz blood orange juice


Preparation: Shake well over ice cubes in a shaker, and strain into a collins glass half-filled with crushed ice.


Partners Hub is offering a lucky reader a Hendrick’s Gin Golf Umbrella and a $20 gift card to Crate & Barrel, which has a variety of fabulous home goods!
