What Does Your Cocktail Say About You

Posted on: 7/8/2019

Why limit happy to an hour? When you think about your home, the kitchen/living room area is where you create the best memories. So let’s find a futon that matches your personality – and your favorite drink! What does your cocktail say about you?

CLASSY AND SOPHISTICATED

Light, bright and slightly sweet – this drink says I’m trying to have some fun but have a fresh breath. Perfect for summer soirees with friends, this drink is simple and refreshing and says “I have my life together”. And honestly, what is fancier than a couple ounces of champagne in your signature drink.

With a luxurious design inspired by both modern and vintage styles, the Nola Mid Century Modern Upholstered Daybed Chaise is upholstered in a rich velvet fabric and sits on tapered wood legs. This chaise and drink go hand in hand and will make you feel worthy of french aristocracy.

Cucumber-Mint Sparklers

Serves 1

  • 1-inch piece of seedless cucumber, finely chopped
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice (about half a lime)
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 2 tsp mint simple syrup:
                            1/2 cup of granulated sugar
                            1/2 cup of water
                            1/2 cup of fresh mint leaves
  • 3 ounces Prosecco or champagne

 

COZY AND INVITING

If this Agua Fresca is your drink of choice, then there is no doubt you were that teenager who ordered excessive amounts of virgin strawberry daiquiri during family vacations at all-inclusive resorts. New and improved, this adult version has vodka. What more is there to say? We (might) have found a drink you’ll enjoy more than wine during the hot summer months – it isn’t overly sweet but oh so refreshing. Feel free to add tiny umbrella’s as a finishing touch and play some wave music to feel like you’re right back at the beach. And for all you millennials, how aesthetically-pleasing is this drink?

Jasper Coil Futon is the furniture equivalent of this fun drink. Available in multiple colors, it is the perfect addition to your home if you are looking to create a cozy and inviting environment.

Pineapple Peach Agua Fresca

Serves 4

  • 3 ripe peaches, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup of fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 cups of water
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of simple syrup
  • 1 cup of frozen peach slices
  • Vodka, to taste
  • Fresh mint

EDGY AND TRENDY

Where do we start with Tequila-based drinks? If a margarita is your cocktail of choice, it means you are that fun friend at Sunday brunch who, by the time you finish your third refill at noon, is going to end up recounting your most embarrassing “when I was in college” stories. There is nothing wrong with that. Every group needs that one friend who will make a party memorable and help create some new amazing memories.

If a margarita is the grown up version of the tequila shots you used to take at your neighborhood bar, then the Novogratz Palm Springs Futon is the upgraded version of your favorite dorm futon. With a simple yet trendy design, this futon comes in a variety of colors that can add an edgy pop of color to your living room, guest bedroom or home office.
