We’re happy to announce an exclusive partnership with 100 Layer Cake—a beautiful destination for wedding inspiration.

Isn’t this the prettiest cocktail you could ever make to mark the beginning of spring? This month we’re celebrating longer days with a few fresh, floral cocktails… starting with the New Moon. It’s got such a dreamy air about it, and goes without saying that violet liqueur is one of our new fave drink ingredients. The how-to is below, along with some of our favorite Gift Registry additions in the barware department this season.

Mint and cucumbers are both so so refreshing in just about any cocktail, but pink lemon juice (though regular lemon juice will do just fine, too) sure takes it up a notch.

The Stainless Steel Cocktail Shaker with Copper Finish and the new Copper Bar Spoon with Muddler are two of the prettiest barware pieces to mix up something tasty and beautiful at a home. Sometimes you really don’t need much to elevate a cocktail bar! Absolute must for the Registry, if you ask us.

A classic margarita glass like the Glory Margarita Glass makes for a sweet ‘n simple presentation. Pin the image below to save the full recipe (and see how to whip up a cute little mint bouquet for garnish!):
