As summer is on its last legs, we begin to round out our Summer Cocktail Series with a few final mixes. Today we’re featuring the Lonely Planet, created by Donal Brophy, former Co-Owner and Bartender at Mary Queen of Scots in New York City.
Inspired by the approach of fall, Brophy created this drink in aspiration of capturing the late summer mornings where you can feel the beginnings of autumn. Although it’s not your basic cocktail, we think it’s worth a shot to try your hand at it.
A drink like this calls for a worthy goblet. Here are three picks from us to give you a little inspiration.
You can’t go wrong with the Harcourt collection by Baccarat. Its goblet is the perfect balance of beautifully cut crystal and stunningly structured design.
William Yeoward’s Calypso Goblet is fun twist on what would otherwise be a standard style. The swirling lines surround this glass creating shapes as it turns.
The Lady Hamilton Goblet by Moser seems as though it were made just for royalty. A style reminiscent of the times of dynasties and palaces, the gold rim adds a fitting touch to this regal collection.
