This week we are bringing back Toast to Type for a special summertime libatinon! Cassandra LaValle of the blog Coco+Kelley recently mixed up this refreshing and beautiful cocktail and we blushed when we saw she’d accessorized it with our Typographers Cocktail Napkins!!

Based on one of her favorite memories of summer in Washington state – cherries, this cocktail deliciously combines Lillet and gin to create a tart yet sweet treat that we could see ourselves sipping on a particularly warm Summer evening!

Toast to the Kentucky Derby with a Ginger Mint Julep


Are you toasting to the Kentucky Derby this weekend?

Here’s a fun spin on the classic Mint Julep. The addition of ginger gives this delicious drink a lovely kick – and looks mighty fine in our Copper Mug! With one of these in hand you’ll be off to the races!


1 1/2 oz. Woodford Reserve®
Juice of 1/2 fresh lime
1 medium piece of candied ginger
1/4 tsp. molasses
3 oz. bitter lemon soda

Muddle all ingredients except the soda in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Transfer to a rocks glass or Copper Mug with ice. Fill with bitter lemon soda. Garnish with a lime twist.

Trés Chic Monogram Moment

Sunday mornings are meant for lounging on the couch, fresh cup of coffee in hand! We’d gladly sit back in this lovely blue living room. The soothing hues remind us of a seaside retreat and that monogrammed pillow adds a preppy pop to the mix of blue prints. A Trés  Chic Monogram Moment indeed!
