cognac snack

On these cold winter days it's nice to warm up with a little something more than hot chocolate... try fresh pecans as a crunchy accompaniment!

We love the delicacy of the Enoteca cognac glass from Schott Zwiesel, wonderfully light in the hand and beautifully sculpted. The Enoteca line is one of the brand's mouth-blown collections, and even at a distance you can see the clarity and quality of this glass. This could be a great sherry glass as well. 8.3oz 

The Alessi nut cracker is a wonderful tool - this is satisfyingly heavy 18/10 stainless steel with a near-mirror satin finish. We can't find a nut this cracker can't crack. Alessi's novelty squirrel shaped cracker is cute (so cute!), but for elegant design and utility this is our pick.
