Despite the old saying, “It’s 5 o'clock somewhere,” there are times when it is inappropriate to have a cocktail. The dentist’s office, for one. Or perhaps you have a job that requires you to operate heavy machinery. In those instances, sitting back with a well-made Old Fashioned would just seem wrong (and potentially dangerous).
Luckily there is a new line of lip balms that allows you to still get your cocktail fix when you can’t get away with actually consuming alcohol. Stewart & Claire partnered with legendary New York City cocktail bar Death & Co. (so many ampersands) to produce a limited-edition collection of lip balms. The three lip balms in the set reference cocktail themes—Boozy (there is no actual booze), Smoky, and Citrusy—rather than specific drinks and come in hand-stamped, hand-numbered bags. As Old School’s Frank the Tank would say, “It’s so good when it hits your lips.”
The collection costs $24 and is available on Stewart & Claire’s website until December 31.
