There’s something a little bit magical about cut glass. It catches the light in the most captivating way, each pattern throwing out a kaleidoscope of enchanting shadows.
It reminds me of being a child and watching the grown ups nurse similar glasses full of forbidden amber liquor.
Now being all grown-up myself it seems the height of sophistication to own a similar set. And even better, to drink warming whiskey cocktails out of them with friends and family during the dark, chilly winter evenings.
These Waterford Crystal Mixology Tumblers are so dreamy. From the perfect shape in the form of a curvy Old-Fashioned glass to the utterly desirable weight that sings of luxury and sits plumply between your palms. My favourite detail which really elevates these beyond the norm is that each glass has a unique decoration-hypnotising swirls, scalloped snowflakes, smooth thumb-sized hollows and orderly, tapered quills.

I have been happily absorbed in playing with my beautiful set of Waterford Crystal tumblers and whiling away the evening playing the mixologist at our drinks cabinet with our well thumbed and note filled copy of Difford’s. Perfect for the easily bored, each tumbler inspires a new cocktail; the swirls something smooth and creamy, the smooth, curved hollows a peppery whisky mix and the quills a modern fruit combination.
In celebration of the bitterly cold nights I am sharing an oldie that will heat you up and accompany a snug log fire and old black and white movie perfectly. The Whisky Mac is sublimely easy and reassuringly traditional containing whisky and the wonderful Enid Blyton sounding Stone’s Green Ginger Wine.
To Make A Whisky Mac:
-In an Old Fashioned style glass pour 2 shots of whiskey over a glass full of ice followed with 1 shot of ginger wine.

Thanks to Waterford Crystal for the opportunity to collaborate on this post and giveaway.
Great post, it’s given me inspiration to try out lots of different combinations now. My current favourite cocktail is an Old Colonial Iced Tea – gin, earl grey tea, soda and lemon. Really light and refreshing.
ooh that sounds so delicious! I will have to try that out-I adore all things gin! xx
My favourite cocktail is called a Blue Hawian and contains Malibu & makes me think about warm nights sat on a white beach in the South Pacific somewhere, with a warm breeze & a cold drink watching a beautiful sunset!!
I think my favourite at the minute is an earl grey martini with an orange twist- you would love it! Merry Christmas to you and Charlie xx
My favourite is a martini with gin, green chartreuse, marachino liqueur and lime juice topped off with a slice of lemon. Yum! Happy new year 🙂
Happy New Year Susie! That cocktail sounds incredible! x
