Holiday Contest | 3 reasons I love ARTEMANO, 3 Holiday Cocktails & 3 ways to WIN!

For those of you who remember, we recently helped to celebrate the GRAND OPENING of ARTEMANO Don Mills. I also had the opportunity to be a part of a holiday themed photoshoot during which I created 3 ARTEMANO themed cocktails. And now, the celebrate the end of an amazing year I am giving you 3 ways to enter to win a $200 GC to ARTEMANO!

Three is a good number for this holiday post. Here are three reasons why I love ARTEMANO!

Reason #1

One of the things I loved most about ARTEMANO Don Mills, similar to their other locations, was how inspiring the space truly was. At every turn, it seemed as though I fell in love with a new piece of furniture & decor for our home. With a revolving inventory of unique and inspiring pieces, there is always something to see at your local location.


Until 4pm today, you can get your favourite Artemano piece for 50% off at the NEW CF Shops at Don Mills location!

Reason #2

There is something to be said for a store where I feel so comfortable, I can sit down and chat with friends while shopping. To me, it shows how easily the beautiful items available at ARTEMANO can fit into my home and yours. If you have yet to visit your local ARTEMANO, you have to go now to see what I mean!



Reason #3

South Asian inspired, ARTEMANO sources their materials from around the world. With sustainability in mind, I can rest assured that items I purchase will add to my home without destroying the home of others. It is not mass produced and synthetic. You can actually feel how natural each item is and it brings the most relaxing energy into your home – which, if it’s like mine, can use some relaxation and tranquility. 

Prior to leaving on our recent trip to The Dominican (stay tuned for our wedding story coming live to the blog!) I took part in a holiday themed photoshoot with ARTEMANO. I created three cocktails for the holidays and New Year’s that are sure to wow your guests. 

Take a look at the incredible feature that they wrote about me on their blog by clicking here.

Here are our three cocktail recipes to try this holiday season:

Mango Mist Martini
Though you might not think of mango when you think of the holiday, I can guarantee this cocktail will help to transport your guests to a beautiful place with you.
Write a review
  1. 1.5 oz Belvedere Vodka
  2. 1.5 Disaronno Originale
  3. 1.5 oz Coconut Milk
  4. 1.5 oz Fresh Mango Juice or Frozen Mango Pieces
  1. Fill martini shaker with ice and combine vodka, coconut milk & mango juice. Shake for 1-2 minutes to ensure ingredients are well mixed and chilled. Strain into a martini glass and serve for a South Asian inspired cocktail that is sure to warm up your guests on a chilly winter night.

Pomegranate Punch
Think pink this holiday season and serve something effervescent with a South Asian twist.
Write a review
  1. 1 oz of Bacardi Maestro de Ron Rum
  2. 1 oz of Peach Syrup
  3. Moët & Chandon Brut Rosé Champagne
  4. Fresh Pomegranate seeds
  1. In a champagne flute, add Bacardi Maestro de Ron Rum. Slowly pour Moët & Chandon Brut Rosé to fill 3/4 of the glass. Carefully drizzle peach syrup into the glass (the sugar will cause the champagne to fizz). Believed to have mystical healing powers in South Asia, by adding fresh pomegranate seeds to this cocktail, you will create a magical moment when you toast to a Happy New Year.
