How To Create a Signature Fantail – Smirnoff Ice

Football season has finally started and that means hosting friends with yummy treats.  Why not have a successful gathering with a signature cocktail?  Smirnoff Ice is the perfect drink because it’s a malted beverage with a citrus taste.  Honestly, it’s the type of cocktail that anyone can enjoy served by itself or on ice.

Take sharing a bottle of Smirnoff Ice to the next level by creating a special drink or Fantail.  The first item you need is a set of mason jars!  They’re fun and large enough to supply everyone’s drinking needs.  Number two, always provide decorative straws; they promote a festive spirit amongst your guests.  Most importantly, add a dish of fruit to compliment the original citrus taste.

Game Day wouldn’t be complete without an order of cheese nachos.  Enjoy the Baltimore Ravens inspired Fantail recipe below and share with us your favorite Smirnoff Ice cocktail:

TRENDS FALL 2015 

COUNTRY LIFE

Autumnal hues. Effortless silhouettes. Fresh patterns. The great outdoors beckon to be explored. Utility meets luxe with cool outerwear, flight pants, jumpsuits and the inclusion of rustic-inspired heritage fabrics like plaids and tweeds.

GLOBAL ATTRACTIONS

The inspiration for Fall’s worldly fashion: the people, prints, places and patterns. You’ll see eye-catching blanket fabrics for ponchos, while coats and utility jackets have a collectible feel. Embellishment is at the forefront with an art and craft vibe to make every piece unique.

WHITE MAGIC

Opt for this season’s collection of cool & crisp neutrals. White is the color of the moment. Layers are oversized and creatively reworked. Cocoon silhouettes lend a cozy feeling with soft textures and amplified volume. Midi skirts and oversized knits inject minimalism into easy looks, while new quilting and padding bring a fresh spin to casual chic.

BLACK MODERNISM

Sharp. Sophisticated. Stunning. There’s never been a better time to head over to the dark side. There’s a whole new attitude to head-to-toe black. Fabrics and texture are key with an unexpected combination of high-tech and luxe materials. Prints are a reflection of modern art, photo and hyper-realism, while athleisure silhouettes are combined with sleek asymmetric must-haves: the stacked set, the mod shift, the track pant, the new sweat and the bomber.

ARTISTIC EXPRESSIONS

As fashion’s latest muse, it’s all about creating your personal sense of style. A kaleidoscope of unexpected, vibrant hues are the new color therapy. Pop art sets the mood for graphic, virtually surrealistic prints. Asymmetric shapes, sparkle bursts and fun furs beget the trend’s wild side.

PURPLE PASSION

The color purple reigns everywhere this season — and it’s not just for key statement piece. From the palest of lilacs to the boldest amethyst, this alluring hue is having a crowning moment this season.

GOLD

All that glitters is gold this holiday season! From luxe chain-link jewelry and sparkling handbags to metallic sweaters and sequined frocks, each item on your wish list is guaranteed to have the Midas touch. Come party time, make a shining statement with this 24-karat color in celestial motifs, shimmery dresses and embellished accessories.
