Holiday Special: Season’s Cocktail Campaign

Studies in the past have demonstrated rising trends in cocktail consumption as a result of audiences’ growing preference for “authenticity”. So, to all party-hosts-to-be (Hint, hint: T-2 days until Thanksgiving!) – in addition to that scrumptious feast, those gorgeous party decor and exciting activities you’ve got hidden up your sleeves – if you are looking to really blitz up the spirit of the occasion, look no further! Here, we’ve brought in sample cocktail beverages that we think perfectly embodies the fall season flavor. From the homey aroma of pumpkin to the spicy tang of cinnamon, from autumn maple to freshly harvested fruit, we simply cannot wait to fine dine and cocktail the night away!
