Bridal and ready-to-wear fashion designer, Monique Lhuillier, knows a thing or two about celebrations. From celebrating weddings to the female form, Monique has built a brand a global brand around making the most of those special moments. So it came as no surprise that when Pottery Barn collaborated with Monique our recent tabletop collection geared towards Registry, the designer made it clear that she wanted something that could be used to elevate the every day but still beautiful enough for entertaining. While bias, we think we hit the nail on the head – the Monique Lhuillier for Pottery Barn collection is a mix of classic silhouettes but with whimsical embellishments that make the products feel fresh.
The above reason is why we asked blogger and mixologist, Elliott Clark of the blog Apartment Bartender to create a celebratory cocktail that was perfect for Fall, could be mixed up easily and parties and incorporated Monique’s love to tequila. Elliott is known for re-imagining classic drinks and giving them a fresh spin. A tall order, but Elliott created an elegant cocktail that not only looks beautiful in our Avril Cut Glass Coupes but is also delicious! So raise your glass at your next holiday party and toast with a Spiced Pear Tequila Cocktail!
