A delightful surprise was waiting for me in my email a few days ago. Do you remember the ‘name the drink‘ contest during the holidays – I asked readers to come up with a name for a delicious twist on the classic French 75 cocktail.
It’s all coming back to you now isn’t it?
After a fierce battle and lots of excellent entries, Elizabeth won the contest with her entry – A Scotsman in Paris
In case you missed the recipe, here it is again. It’s well worth a try!
A Scotsman in Paris
• 2 ounces Hendricks Gin
• 1 tablespoon Cranberry SImple Syrup • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
• 5 ounces Prosecco
• Garnish with mint and lemon twist
Into a Champagne flute add the simple syrup, lemon juice and gin. Top off with prosecco. Garnish and enjoy.

So today’s Eye Candy is courtesy of Elizabeth who was kind enough to take a snap of her prize, the vintage silver gin decanter label in action!
Vintage Silver Decanter Label Eye Candy
I wonder how often they have to refill it? 😉
Added after publication…Karen in the comments has just asked about interesting uses for decanter labels. I’ll admit this is a tough one. I’ve put a couple of my thoughts in the comments below, but would LOVE to see what you come up with!
