Good Cheers: The GM75 Cocktail from Our Restaurants
New Year’s Eve is around the corner. Whether you plan on ringing in 2018 on your couch swaddled in cozy loungewear snacking on crudités or intend to shimmer the year away wearing your favorite light-catching threads, the occasion welcomes a cocktail. To set the tone for a bright new year, we suggest pairing sparkling wine with the orange-flavored cognac liqueur Grand Marnier. A champagne flute in a sunset shade of citrine dressed with a zesty orange peel is just the vibrant accessory your evening needs, no matter your attire.
If you’d prefer someone else do the mixing, stop by a Nordstrom Restaurant to have a GM75 prepared for you. And have a happy new year!
