Your Perfect Drink Based on Your Engagement Ring
By The ThirstyNest Editors
Now that you have some new bling you'll need the perfect drink to clink it against. We spoke to our friends at Ritani for some ideas on how to figure out your perfect drink order based on your ring style.
A solitaire engagement ring showcases the dazzling beauty of a single diamond, for the gal who appreciates elegant simplicity. When it comes to elegant simplicity we are all about the classic Martini. You can customize it any which way to reflect your taste while still holding true to the classic. For the original, combine 2 ½ oz of gin or vodka with ½ ounce of dry vermouth in a mixing glass. Stir and strain into a chilled martini glass with a lemon twist.
Halo engagement rings are designed with a border of small, delicate diamonds framing the center diamond. The halo style is perfect for someone looking for a little extra shimmer in their life. We think the best pairing for extra bling is more bling. Champagne is the ultimate sparkler and it makes a brilliant backdrop against your ring finger.
A three-stone engagement ring delivers a sensational look, with its row of diamonds dramatically increasing sparkle and visual impact. A meaningful choice, the three stones represent your past, present and future together. Our favorite three part cocktail - the Negroni- is the ultimate pairing for this guy. It has Italian style with sunset-hued visual impact. Sip it while dreaming of your past, present and future home bar together.
4. Classic Diamond
Distinguished by tasteful diamond-studded bands, the Classic style is a timeless engagement ring. It’s the ring-lover’s ring just like Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine-lover’s wine. This rich, iconic red is the best partner for your ring style. Whether it’s a fruit forward Napa or that old world Bordeaux elegance, it’s an ideal pour for you.
Antique-inspired yet subtly infused with modern taste, vintage engagement rings offer the best of both worlds. Their delicate designs, lacy filigree work and old world charm are paired with diamonds cut using the latest technology to bring out maximum beauty and sparkle. Why not bring back an oldie but a goodie with the ultimate oldie, the OId Fashioned? Check out our article on The History of the Old Fashioned .
