Posted by Boelter Beverage on November 15, 2017

Oh, the weather outside is frightful. But, inside it's so delightful. And since we've no place to go... let's prep drinkware for our favorite holiday cocktails!

There is no denying it. A holiday beverage is a very different entity than a typical beer or cocktail. It might come down to the unique sweet and spicy flavor combos that pop up this time of year. Or maybe it's just the colorful garnishes. Regardless, the holidays present a perfect opportunity for distilleries, breweries, and wineries to celebrate with their customers and catch the attention of new ones.

How? With seasonal cocktails, wine, and beer paired with branded glassware and drinkware that boosts flavor and aroma, and looks good while doing it!

To help you prepare, we've put together a downloadable Holiday Cocktail & Drinkware Pairing infographic that lays out some of our favorite holiday beverages and the best drinkware to serve them in. Incorporate your brand's drinks into these cheerful recipes and add them to your seasonal menu or share them with your distributors, customers and on your social media pages. Not only will this allow you to spread your holiday flavors, but it will also give you the opportunity to teach your customers about the importance of using the proper drinkware to create the best drink experience possible.
