Matching Sunglasses to Cocktails

Deussen Combines Eyewear Style with Summer Libations

— August 8, 2009 — Lifestyle
We all have personal sunglass preferences. Some of us wear aviators, some Wayfarers, and some (like me) tend towards the big Jackie O glasses. But now it seems your preference for glasses can also be reflected in your preference for drink, as Deussen has created recipes for these three iconic eyeglass styles.

From the lady who loves her Jackie O glasses there’s the Strawberries & Lavender Sapphire Collins. For the Wayfarer wearer, there’s the Lucid Wormwood Flip, and for the aviator wearers, the Flor de Caña’s Papa Doble Cocktail. So kick back with a lively libation this summer while shielding your eyes from the sun in style (recipes below, courtesy of Deussen).
