Spicy, Fruity Cognac
Hennessy displays its age-old expertise on the design of this collectable limited edition of cognac carafe, whose curves have remained unchanged since the Marquis de Geoffre traced them out in 1947. Designer Arik Levy chose to trace a plinth on which the carafe rests, taking inspiration from the Rocks, which typify his works. Masculine and powerful, Hennessy X.O. delivers a strong, peppery heat spiced with cloves and hints of old leather. This power softens in the mouth, blurred by gourmet notes of vanilla, cinnamon and candied fruit.



Serve It Up
This winter, up the style quotient on your cocktail parties with this selection of bar accessories, which are not only high on the quirk factor, but also on usability.


1. Ice-cooler: If you thought ice can only be kept in ugly tubs, think again. This ice holder from Home Collective comes with a super-cool silicon lid and is available in white and black. homecollective.in

2. Valentine’s bowls: Shaped like a top, with blood red bases, these stainless steel bowls from Magpie are meant for goodies to go with your drink. Note (after the first couple of pegs): Not to be spun when full.



3. Hors d’oeuvre plate: Find it unfashionable and inconvenient to have both your hands occupied with a drink and an appetizer? Slip on this charming plastic plate from Home Collective on your finger, while you hold the flute glass. There is so much you can do with that other hand now.










4. Ice-moulds: The Stainless Steel Cool Stix from Blomus makes a style statement and makes ice as well. All you need to do is pour water into the silicon moulds, dip the stainless steel sticks in the moulds, and put them in the freezer. You are ready to serve ice cubes frozen around the sticks, to be stirred into any drink. thestainlesssteelstore.com
