MSG for 21+
Things are beginning to slow down a bit, days become shorter, football and lots of entertaining. Some of you don’t know this but I built my home in the country. The sunsets are unreal, we call it the magic hour when we shoot photos but it truly is a magical time. It’s when I usually have my get togethers. The golden light creates a natural, beautiful ambiance. Warm tones make me feel so cozy!
Absolut Elyx is perfect for Autumn get togethers because copper makes everything better. Not only is the bottle beautiful but they even have their own copper stemware. It’s adorable and I think everyone needs a set. This Single Estate Luxury Vodka was crafted with natural ingredients and using copper during the distillation process. Working with copper is fantastic because it’s known to clean out impurities. The Absolut Elyx distillation happens in two stages: the first distillation produces the raw spirit; the second, called rectification, gives it it’s fine spirit.
To this day, Absolut uses real people and not computers. Everything is done entirely by hand, using technique and traditional skills only a few know. Another cool fact that I learned is that they practice sustainable farming, which produces NON-GMO Wheat. Their establishment is carbon neutral where they buy electricity from sustainable sources – mix of hydro and wind generated green electricity. Each Absolute bottle is made out of 40% recycled glass.
How do I plan on incorporating this luxury vodka into my get togethers? Raspberry Mules. They’re so delicious and very easy to make.

This cocktail is a crowd pleaser but everyone couldn’t get enough of the copper stemware. They also arrived with these adorable pineapple pins, which is a sign of hospitality. Back in the day, pineapples were not easy to come by. The rarity of this fruit made them very special. When a hostess displayed a pineapple, guests felt incredibly honored. This is why you’ll sometimes see pineapple fountains, lighting fixtures, welcome mats, etc. when you first enter a property.
