A little while ago I received a lovely package from Consol Glass complete with amazing glass jars and bottles of all sizes, stripey paper party straws and lovely little cocktail umbrellas to make tropical cocktails. I ran a cocktail competition for a glass hamper giveaway - you can read about my cocktail: Santa's sneaky sleigh sipper here.
I would love to give you all a Consol Hamper - cause they are so awesome, but unfortunately there can only be one winner -
Beverley Johnston and her Lickable Lemon cocktail
which includes lemongrass, pineapple, sprite zero and crushed mint leaves.
Lemongrass makes me think of thailand... so fragrant and delish!
Don't those ingredients just make you want to test run this yummy drink!
(You can actually find her full recipe on the indieBerries facebook page)
I had some awesome entries so just wanted to share a few with you in case you needed any cocktail inspiration -
Cherry Cranberry Beer Margaritas - from Claire Kirkman
A "healthy" version of a White Russian (milk, kahlua, vodka and ice-cream) - from Georgie H
A Pimms concotion with mint and Strawberries - from Dhesh
Liquid Glass with rum, pineapple and ginger ale - from Zai Khan
And some Christmas cocktail specials (below) - from Cleverbird
Thank you all for your entries and you can keep up to date with any other Consol Giveaways by liking their facebook page. They currently have some awesome Valentines Day glass ideas -
As a little something extra, Consol have come out with a Glass Inspiration Digital Magazine - which is packed full of awesome Glass DIYs and other inspiring things to make and do with glass. You can download a copy here.
AND! Something even more awesome - Consol have also come out with a range of downloadable printables - all those gorgeous labels you see on those glass jars? You can download a variety of them here ranging from gift tags, fathers day tags, lid decals (my personal fave) to cake bunting and envelopes. They are all so gorgeous - and there are a couple of designs for each category. Definitely download them all right now!
(And Guess what Warren is getting for Valentines day? lol)
