Scan, savor and enjoy!

Why garnish a cocktail with fresh fruit when you can have exquisite jewelry adorning your drink?

Some mixologists around the country are dressing up the average cocktail with silver, diamonds and pearls. While the jewels won’t add to the taste, it will certainly add to the sparkle. And even though your drink won’t last long, you’ll walk away with a beautiful new addition to your jewelry collection that is sure to last a lifetime—and just might justify that hefty price tag.
