A Festive Bar & French Manhattans


A Festive Bar

I love adding fun details to the spaces we call home. A bar can sometimes feel a bit uptight so it’s a perfect spot for a splash of whimsy. When Chambord suggested we team up to create a festive bar top I knew just what I wanted to create. Vibrant doily baubles that look a bit like they are floating up and out of the glasses are such a fun detail for turning an everyday bar into a festive one.

The update is great fun for a birthday, special celebration, or any occasion when you want to add a little spunk. Using temporary glue dots makes the entire backdrop one that can come up and down in a day. Plus a serving of French Manhattans and a painted pink swan, because why not!?!…

Black Raspberry Liqueur; 16.5%, 21+.

To make the colorful doily baubles we purchased doilies in a few favorite colors. We layered them and added these adhesive stickers to write in a few festive sayings. Pop, Fizz, Clink!

French Manhattan

A French Manhattan is a sweet way to celebrate a special occasion. To make one you will need:

• 2 oz Bourbon or rye
• 1 oz Chambord
• 2 dashes orange bitters
• 1 Brandied Cherry

Shake the ingredients together (everything but the cherry) in a cocktail shaker, strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherry. The bar top is a sweet, festive and perfect update for our next party
