    Comments about CLASSIC COCKTAILS TOWEL:

    I plan on giving gift baskets based on the various cocktail recipes. I'll use the towel - pick a drink and then add glassware and perhaps the liquor. I'm going to start with the Moscow Mule drink because it's not a well known cocktail AND the copper mug that it is served in is interesting. Mug is on this site too. 20 cocktails - 20 ideas for baskets!!

                I loved the artwork so much on this towel that I plan on hanging it on my wall above my bar cart. I'm unsure if I'll frame it or just hang it. The colors are just what I was expecting!

                I'm always on the lookout for towels such as these. We all need and use dish towels so why not make them entertaining as well! Such fun...wet or dry!

                  I sent this to a friend as an "I like you and miss you" gift. She absolutely loved it and sent me photos when it arrived. While I can't comment on how it wears, it is a nice quality towel with lovely colors.

                        This for my boyfriend's mom who just passed bartending school. This towel is very attractive, green friendly and a cute reminder for making a drink. This towel is the perfect unique towel I was looking for.

                          Now THIS is very on point. This would be a big seller. I'm not sure that I would buy it, as it's not my style, but by far, this is what I think will be the biggest seller out of the products I've reviewed so far.

                          I'd rather have this information on something that's not going to get dirty and end up in the laundry room when I need it. More useful as a bar mat or frame.

                          It's ok...but made in the UK? I'd rather buy American made.

                          Love it. Would also like to see one with more mid-century tiki flare. I would totally buy one with some Don the Beachcomber type art on it!

                          Buy a cocktail recipe book instead of a cheesy towel.

                          Already out there, but colors are fun. Depends on price.

                          Not bad. I've seen these elsewhere so it really depends on the price.
