The Second Cocktail of Christmas: Two Turtlenecks?


On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me two turtlenecks and Campari with a pear purée.

Ok, turtlenecks don’t really have anything to do with it but since this drink comes to us from clothing retailer Banana Republic I took the artistic liberty.

After planning and cooking Christmas dinner you may not have time to create a signature cocktail but you always have time to set out a little red wine and put the white on ice. Make your wine selection memorable with these stylish and seasonal bottles from Banana Republic and Clos du Bois (this may be the first time I’ve gotten ideas for my holiday attire from the drinks I’m serving). Nutritionally speaking, wine is a pretty good bet, 5 ounces of the Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon is just 90 calories while the Chardonnay is 85.  Plus, nothing compliments a hearty meal like a nice glass of wine.

SHAPE readers can log on to Clos du Bois now through the New Year and get 25% off the purchase of these adorable bottles using the code "BRPHOL11.” Log on now and stock up. They make the perfect hostess gift for all the season’s stylish soirées. I know a few ladies who will be getting them from me!

As an editor at SHAPE I have the chance to learn about the healthiest ways to cook, eat, and live from all sorts of experts but I’m also a single girl living in NYC with a busy schedule, active social life, and chocolate cravings. I’m here to share what works for me—and where I need a little help from you.
