17. Jonathan Adler Zebra Dish $24 – After dinner mints on a zebra tray. Why not?


I have been seeing those Apothecary Matches everywhere lately – I really want them!

I read the first line as ‘the hostess with the molasses’! I guess giving cookies as gifts is on my mind this year!

well the answer is quite simple really … I’d use this exquisite set to try and emulate/create all the amazing drinks I see on Honestly Yum. I def would be using it for daiquiris, margaritas, martinis, all the various citrus concoctions I enjoy messing around with, whenever I deviate from traditional old fashioneds so like old fashioned based stuff, I really enjoy Aperol and having been using it more and more outside of a straight up spritz so the measuring utensil would be clutch as my eyeballing is draining my bottles maybe too rapidly lol, it’d come in handy with the whiskey sours and moscow mules, etc … possibilities are endless. Japanese stuff is the way to go!
