1 oz. lemon-lime soda
1.5 oz. pineapple juice
Drizzle of grenadine
In a cocktail shaker add Lucid Absinthe, Midori melon liqueur, pineapple juice and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a two-ounce shot glass. Splash lemon-lime soda on top and a drizzle of grenadine.
2 oz. SKYY Infusions Blood Orange vodka
1 oz. lime juice
1 oz. peach puree
1/2 oz. hibiscus
If you’ve got a metal door, this is the easiest method. The magnet comes as two powerful disks — one rests on the inside of a glass pane and the other on the outside. Or, if you’re using it on a door without glass, simply stick one of the magnets on the outside of the metal door and hang your wreath. The hook holds a wreath that weighs up to about six pounds. And while you once only found chrome magnets, you now can buy them in colors, including black and white. The magnets are available in most hardware stores and at The Container Store.
Wreath Pro Adjustable Hanger
This clear polycarbonate hook system, with a slim, invisible design, allows you to easily hang just about any wreath from doors and windows.
