I run across drink pairing recommendations regularly living in New York City, at restaurants, on blogs, and even on some spa menus. One pairing that surprisingly hasn't made a big showing until now is nail art to cocktail. It's a natural fit because summer drinks will always be at hand wherever clients are lounging. To create these these polished pairs, Rita Remark, Essie's lead nail designer, drew inspiration from Seagram's Escapes beverages and Essie's bright nail lacquers. "Through the Keep it Colorful campaign, Seagram's Escapes is curating inspired moments that encourage women to add more color to their lives," says Jennifer McCauley, Seagram's Escapes brand manager. "From entertaining to personal style, we are inviting friends like Remark to share ideas that will make these everyday occasions a little more fun and colorful."
Here are the tools you need to create Remark's vibrant tips for vacationing clients this season:
Polo Stripe (Pair with a watermelon mimosa: Combine 6 oz Seagram's Escapes Watermelon Splash, 3 oz sparkling rose wine, and 1/2 oz lime juice with ice and serve in a champgane flute)
Sun & Sea (Pair with the sweet revenge cocktail: Combine 6 oz Seagram's Escapes Kiwi Strawberry, 1 oz strawberry liqueur, and 1/2 oz lime juice with ice and serve chilled in a martini glass)
