Bags & Cocktails!

I love handbags. Handbags are a girl’s best friend (at least for some).
Today’s day the concept of the “It Bag” is popular. This is the definition of the It Bag on Wikipedia: "The term "It Bag" was coined in the 1990s with the explosive growth of the handbag market in fashion. Designers competed to produce a single, easily recognizable design which, if cleverly marketed, endorsed by the fashion press, or seen being carried by a celebrity, would become that season's must-have bag, selling in large numbers. "
For me I buy a bag because I like the brand or the model, and I love people complimenting on my fetiche accessory. Some days just the handbag can make the trick.
I have, also, always been fascinated by the world of cocktails. Observing the mixologist pick up the ingredients and make magical moves to present a drink with the right amount of sweetness, sourness, alcohol, fruits and the pinch of exotic ingredients is magical.
This post is about handbags blending in perfection with the right cocktail. Alberto Pizarro, one the best mixologist in Spain, champion of the World Class Champion 2011, is the bar manager at the trendy & elegant cocktail bar: Bobby Gin. He prepared each of the cocktail mixing the flavors & licors with the design and material of each bag. Thanks Alberto & Bobby Gin.
