winter weekend cocktails with tervis

By 12/13/2014

brian meares and i have taken to the season with a really classy ritual of weekend cocktailing.  in the winter we find ourselves unusually home on the weekends, sort of staring at each other, and we've discovered a bit of drinking makes that more enjoyable - imagine that!

his go-to: bourbon with cider and a splash of ginger ale.  my staple: a bottle (or two) of champs with some extra pulpy oj.

more importantly, his lumbersexual drink requires hotness, more than he can muster himself, and mine must stay chilly, and my general disgruntledness won't do it alone.






in steps our trusty tervis tumblers.  we have an arsenal in several colors and sizes to fit our vibes, and they do the trick of keeping him hot and me cold.

and lucky for yal, i'm teaming up with southern living and tervis this holiday to give you guys the gift of temperate drinking.  if you comment on this post and share your favorite winter cocktail, you're entered for a chance to win 2 sets of entertaining collection tumblers (stout and tall) in your choice of color.  party on!

furthermore, southern living is giving away all kinds of goodies this month over here.   you can enter daily for a chance to win some really cool stuff, plus the $2000 grand prize.

  27. Call me an old lady but I love a good hot toddy or hot buttered rum in winter. Hot buttered rum takes just a few minutes to make if you aren't a cocktail snob so it has immediate satisfaction going for it too! Jenn at East Meets South
