toast to type

This weekend we will be celebrating Memorial Day. These means Summer is so close, we can almost taste it and with the Honey Citrus Cocktail, we can!

Adding honey to a drink gives it a deep, rich flavor compared to using simple syrup. This cocktail has us thinking about lounging on the beach digging our toes in the sand with one our hand. Click Read More for all the delicious details.

Vodka is often a neutral and versatile spirit that can be added to many cocktails. For this Honey Citrus drink, we decided to go bold instead of neutral with Dragon Fruit vodka to give it sweet and sour flavor with a floral undertone. Dragon Fruit vodka and a flower garnish adds an exotic and tropical touch to citrus juices.

Our Hand-Blown Stemless Wine Glass makes the perfect glass for the Honey Citrus cocktail. The globe like glass isn’t just for wine, it adds a tropical feel that goes along with the flavor profile of the drink. Monogram the Hand-Blown Stemless Wine Glass with everyones favorite font, Helvetica Neue.

Helvetica is a very famous sans-serif typeface created in 1957 by Swiss designer Max Miedinger. It is use almost everywhere, in many signs, textbooks, and advertisements due to it’s legibility.  Helvetica Neue came about in 1983 to make the varying weights and versions that were created over the years more uniform.

Are you Helvetica Neue? If your look is fresh, clean, and simple, just the way we want our Summer days to be, than this typeface is for you!
