Absolut Vodka has collaborated with Social Studies to create a holiday kit inspired by the cocktail of the moment, the Espresso Martini.
The Social Studies x Absolut Espresso Martini kit is designed for anyone looking to re-embrace the role of host with ease and style. The limited-time rentable kit includes entertaining essentials such as a table runner, dinnerware, glassware, candles, votives, exclusive hosting tips & tricks and more.
“We are thrilled to partner with Absolut to help people unwind this holiday season with an espresso martini in hand,” said Jessica Latham, Social Studies Co-Founder and CEO. “This collaboration is at the heart of our mission – making entertaining effortless by offering everything needed to set a beautiful holiday table with ease, along with hosting tricks and party essentials.”
Serving as the centerpiece of the collaboration, this espresso martini is crafted with Absolut vodka. It is mixed with equal parts Absolut, Kahlúa and espresso, making a lively and versatile choice with the option to tailor the taste to each guest using festive garnishes.
“Whenever there’s a fashion trend, there’s a cocktail trend – and as we enjoy this ’90s resurgence, we’re sipping in style with Absolut Espresso Martinis this holiday season,” said Jane Danger, Pernod Ricard Mixologist. “With its rich, full-bodied and complex yet smooth taste, Absolut is the go-to vodka for espresso martinis as the bedrock for the cocktail’s decadent velvet and warming flavor profile. Plus, our new cocktail kit comes with seasonal garnishes like Cookies & Cream – talk about a nostalgic taste that brings joy!”
The Social Studies x Absolut Espresso Martini kit is available at Social Studies’ official website beginning Nov. 3 through Jan. 5 and can be rented for gatherings starting at four guests for $68 per guest. In addition, hosts can pair their rentable entertaining kit with the Absolut Espresso Martini Cocktail Kit that includes everything one needs to mix up the cocktail that everyone is talking about.
Meanwhile, an Absolut Espresso Martini Cocktail Kit is available on its own via ReserveBar. It includes 750ml bottles of Absolut and Kahlua, espresso, seasonal garnishes (Vanilla Hazelnut, Chili Coco, Pumpkin Spice, Cookies & Cream), cocktail stencil for garnishes, as well as a cocktail shaker, jigger and ornament. It is priced at $179.
