A quick preface: we're not ones to shy away from a little hard work. When it's time to entertain, hors d'oeuvres are served; playlists are made; cocktails get mixed. It's not that we're opposed to standing at the bar cart juicing, shaking and stirring until everybody's satisfied. But. Summertime unlocks in us a sort of relaxed approach to entertaining (we like to think of it as distinctly European) where the individually mixed drinks all seem like a little...much. Lucky for us, perennial favorite Kaufmann Mercantile now stocks this incredibly striking pewter and crystal cocktail pitcher-- a refined, stately piece for housing your latest batch of bloodys or homemade sangria. Suddenly, indoors and out, entertaining becomes simple again: pass. pour. repeat. Sure, you could mix custom drinks, but when being lazy looks this good...it's hard to resist. Get it here.
