Getting Ready for The NY Gift Show!

After much explaining to airport security what “finials” are, Hillary Thomas Designs has officially landed in New York City!  In case you don’t already know, the New York International Gift Fair is this weekend and we are so excited to be officially debuting our newest “Moxie Collection” – a fierce collaboration with the queen of all acrylic, Alexandra Von Furstenberg. Like nothing you’ve ever seen before, these transparent Asian inspired acrylic finials are going to knock your socks off.  With names like Gutsy, Tempting, and Cutthroat they are not for the faint of heart.  We’re taking finials to a whole new level!

If you are going to be at the show please come visit us over at Pier 94 – #46035. We will be right across the way from the oh-so-fabulous Bunny Williams and the Beeline Home team. And may we suggest you stop by around 5, as each day we’ll be serving up our signature cocktail “The Gasparilla”. Check out the recipe below!

The Gasparilla

2 oz Reposado Tequila 
1 1/2 oz Pink Grapefruit Juice

1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Premium Dry Vermouth
1/4 oz Golden Agave Nectar
2 dashes Mole Bitters
Sprigs of Cilantro
Muddled cucumber

Muddle pieces of cucumber in the bottom of a cocktail shaker
Add cilantro sprigs and bitters
Pour remaining ingredients into shaker and fill with ice
Shake vigorously for approximately 10 seconds
Strain into an Old Fashioned glass filled with ice
Garnish with a lime twist and umbrella (umbrella optional, but recommended!)
