SERIOUS stuff going on here (with an anything but serious sign, aries), pouring the nectar of the gods. something they are excel at, i might ad ; )
leos always LOVE anything INTOXICATED ZODIAC. look at all those orange leo glasses below!
awww, love those sweet little cancers.
gemini, i guess you’re ok too.
reusable ice cubes made the old fashioned way–from stone. i betcha the cavemen used cubes similar to these! first the wheel, then cubes… next–well the future is a blank canvas. so next time you enjoy a good stiff drink, be sure to get your rocks off-or in-with some good ‘ole WHISKEY STONES. it’s even possible the stones will enjoy their tipple submersion… after all, did you know that rocks have a consciousness?

i just thought these glasses were so original. (which means ten stores will copy them for next season and sell them for 1/4 the price. but, these adorable specimens might just be odd enough that they won’t appeal to mass market and hence won’t be worth knocking off…)
but do you see the bellies on these babies? perfect for the to-be-mom, or spare-tired mate, or me.
$85 available at BERGDORF GOODMAN on 5th and 59th.
our astrology wine glasses were the talk of a german astrology blog recently. why? because these beautiful glasses make the perfect gift for the wine drinker in your life!
• for the red drinker, get the white glass. for the white drinker, get the black…
• the exquisite faceted stem adds a touch of class…
• all twelve signs of the Zodiac are illustrated drinking wine…
• carl jung’s famous quote is printed in an elegant script:
“We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born.Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.”

well, i wasn’t exactly a speeding bullet on the news of these sleek shot glasses ($22). they’ve been blogged to bits all over the web, but i stumbled on them recently and it was love at first sight. ironic though, because can you think of any two things that go together less than drinking and shooting? ever see Apocalypse Now… well don’t.
so, what exactly is it that makes guns so sexy? the fact that we (or, I) find something so lethal to be alluring is a curiosity. i guess it’s the power to end life. power’s an aphrodisiac so “they” say…
shooting a gun is kind of empowering, i highly recommend it. and hell, with all this talk of a revolution it might be good to have a little metal friend. that said, if i carried a gun in my purse i’d shoot my pinky off at best. i’m totally psyched they opened a shooting club in manhattan. if you want to have fun with some real bullets head on over to manhattan’s new shooting club, WEST SIDE PISTOL RANGE.

check out this HUGE shaker at target. it stood about a foot tall, and it was so wide i couldn’t fit my hand around it! as you can see they also had a single serve shaker and a normal size shaker. the big ass one holds 50 something ounces. that’s a whole lotta martini…
my parents (we all hate them) just came back from south africa. my swag was a beautiful hand hammered tribal necklace, AND a hand crocheted and beaded drink doily! apparently they’re all the rage over there in the tourist shops. i think this is so cool—what a practical gift! think about it… how many times have you been sitting out on the porch sipping on your caiphirina when i big ole fly lands on the edge for a little sip himself? well, say goodbye to mr. fly — thanks to the drink doily. the best part was that the lady’s cooperative that made these items funded the livelihood of aids victims. (which is the whole damn continent; another conspiracy…)
here’s the bar booth that my friend annie designed and built. let me know if you’d like to hire her to help with your booth…
the “celestial is not a plastic body” totes grabbed a lot of attention, as they were hanging up high where they were easy to see.
below is a close up shot of the celestial cocktail candles, the shot glass travel candles, the rocks glasses and the shot glasses. (the rocks glasses are actually the candle votives sold separately. they’re not on the website yet, so if want ‘em just email me)
our new wedding line consists of a totally new concept called marriage sign astrology. it was a hit! look for us to be featured in a bunch of magazines soon…
my loyal assistant, JP, the ultimate sales dude. he hates when i call him dude ; )
launched at this show, astrology wine glasses!
remember that a portion of all intoxicated zodiac sales goes to animal-related charity! so cheers to philanthropy, and cheers to another successful show at the javitz center. but, most of all, cheers to all the new and existing stores that carry our lines and support intoxicated zodiac!
Anindita Mitra writes for the THE TELEGRAPH in calcutta, india. she’s a sagittarius… the sign of both mental and physical travel, and she virtually travelled across the globe to research her cocktail blogosphere piece. well written and interesting, the article mentions yours truly along with the other KAISER, ms thing the LIQUID MUSE, none other than JAMIE BOUDREAU, my ACHING HEAD, the one and only CAMPER ENGLISH, mixology monday founder PAUL CLARKE and COCKTAILIANS. cheers to us all, and thanks anindita! check the article out here…thanks for the pic alcademics…
so we had our first trade show here at IZ. woah… that is a big step! this is where you spend a zillion dollars and hopefully make another few in return. overall, we had a successful first show at the NYIGF… JP and I took orders from both brides and stores, spoke to product reps interested in carrying our line, stores interested in purchasing our products, magazine interested in featuring IZ, and a whole bunch of nice peeps. the best part of any trade show is the last day when you can buy up all the other vendor’s samples at wholesale cost. shopaholic here…! the other vendors were so incredibly nice… how weird is this? the one store in rhineback, new york, that carries the Intoxicated Zodiac line ended up across the aisle from us. what a small world! check out the charming southern belle, chari’s, eclectic and fun store, MERRIEWEATHER’S. this effervescent woman makes some of the best lotion i have ever slathered myself in and you your skin has not lived until it has had chari’s lavender body butter… everyone loved loved loved our booth. visitors would just halt in their tracks, as their mouth dropped in awe, to gaze upon our oh-so-creative booth. ALL thanks to my uber-talented friend, ANNIE KLOER, for building it. she is a set designer/pastel artist/trompe l’oeil painter/farmer/certifiable nut! if you would like to hire her to construct a dream booth for your brand, just shoot me an email and i will slip you her digits. she is worth her weight in gold. last but not least, thanks to margarite for letting us borrow the bar stools from her restaurant, LA PALAPA, in nyc. (some of the most authentic mexican food you will ever taste, this side of the rio grande). and the icing on this huge cake is…. yes, would you believe, we’ve even gotten some press from the show all ready in the GIFTS & ACCESSORIES MAG! check it out here…
