The Aplós World is a celebration of community, connection, and the simple things that surround us.
The Wie Suite Dinner Series:
At the beginning of the winter season, we partnered with The Wie Suite to serve Aplós at their bi-annual supper club, “Table For Eight,” a series of bespoke Jeffersonian style dinners.
High-level women founders, executives, and creatives all across the country joined together for dinner led by hosts Christina Lewis, Rebecca Minkoff, and more. Guests sipped on A Fizzy Affair, a favorite for social gatherings.

Cheers to the pursuit of magic.

Redoux Holiday Pop-Up:
Last month, Redoux celebrated the opening of their holiday pop-up at the Laura Lombardi jewelry shop in the LES. They introduced the "Scent Bar," designed to mirror wine tastings.
To pair with the interactive scent bar, Redoux Co-Founder and mixer host Asia Grant served "Lingering Awkwardly by the Snack Table," a craft cocktail from Commissions, our first ever recipe book.
Lingering, Awkwardly, by the Snack Table
It’s not that you haven’t got anyone to talk to. Your solitude at the snack table is fully calculated. Wholly necessary, by the way, as party snacks are not conducive to eating in front of strangers—one of life’s most baffling contradictions. Why must hors d’oeuvres be ever-so-slightly bigger than a mouthful—straddling the border between one bite and two? Settle on two bites, and half of it pathetically collapses in your hand. Do it in one and you will lapse into awkward, gobsmacked silence. On another note, it is necessary to try all the snacks. It is. How else will you know which snack is worth stockpiling? Inevitably, the question of whether you’re being antisocial will arise, but don’t let it deter you from the snack table. While others are wobbling, famished, by end of night, you’ll leave replete, on steady feet.
Non alc sparkling wine
Add all ingredients except the sparkling wine to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until cold and strain into a small wine glass or coupe. Top with the sparkling wine, garnish with a lemon wheel, and serve.
