How to Serve It

Amongst my favorite hosting tips lies the element of mixing vintage goods with classic, capsule decor. For this fall apple cider cocktail, I served it up in a vintage cocktail glass. Alongside our olive stripe cocktail napkins, I finished off with the garnishes of the season — apple, cinnamon, and rosemary.

Serve with your favorite glasses from your kitchen elevates that experience and easily ties in the seasons and themes you are going for as you entertain. I love using my olive cocktail napkins in the fall, but find them so charming for spring cocktails as well.
