It’s no surprise that octopus designs are making a big splash in home décor and this platter turns summertime foods into centerpieces. Which is great for entertaining friends and family. Who wouldn’t enjoy a Blue Independence cocktail on a hot summers day? Unfortunately, the Pottery Barn serving pedestal was so popular this summer that it is sold out. Pottery Barn does have a few more Octopus Drink Dispenser Stand which are on sale now (until inventory is depleted). So if you are doing any last minute entertaining you may want to get one now.
To make the cocktail:
1 1/2 oz. of Bombay Sapphire Gin
3/4 oz. of lime juice
1/2 oz. of Blue Curacao
1 oz. Peach Schnapps
1/4 oz. simple syrup
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake vigorously and strain into a glass.
Garnish with a sprig of mint or a few blueberries on a cocktail pick.
