biggest january giveaway ever! {worth over 500 dollars}

let's face it we all need a cocktail at the end of a hectic day, week or month. i for a fact love a great cocktail... anytime!!! after juicing for 21 days with no alcohol, it's clear i am ready for a drink and not just any old drink, a creative cocktail.

lucky for me the word "mixologist" is very in style right now. mixology appeals to not only the entertainer in me but to the cook as well. cocktails have become a very complex and genius in their combinations and preparation.  so let's have some fun in 2012!

i am blessed that i have very talented friends who happen to be experts in the field + are willing to share their secret alcoholic concoctions with me, and i in turn would like to share them with you in a new addition to my blog, "celebrity cocktail of the week". yep, each week on thursday {well timed right before every weekend} i will ask some of my very high profile super groovy friends to share their favorite & original cocktail recipes.

in anticipation of creating many simply fabulous cocktails throughout the year . i have decided to do my annual big giveaway of the year and of course i decided to get the winner prepped for my upcoming cocktail of week feature by offering a "barman/woman tools of the trade"as my BIG giveaway. what a great way to kick off the new addition to my blog. i have enlisted the help of one of my favorite flash sites, The Foundary, known for their fabulous products with unparalleled quality. they seem like the perfect match for this incredible giveaway. check out their site, if you are not a member sign up straight away, it's easy.
