The holidays are on their way, and we're ready to raise a glass! We’re breaking out our barware to celebrate the season with a delicious, festive cocktail inspired by our decadent Lumière Caramel Shimmer Oil.

Making spirits bright.

Whether you’ll be entertaining family around the dinner table or cozying up with a book by the fireplace, we’ve got the perfect recipe to add some cheer to your holiday season. 

Mix up The Beauty Spot, a contemporary classic cocktail reminiscent of our lustrous Lumière Caramel Shimmer Oil, and toast to celebrating the holidays like a FRENCH GIRL.

  Lumière Caramel’s dessert-like tawny hue inspired FRENCH GIRL to find a cocktail as beautifully decadent.

  Chosen to mirror our gorgeous shimmer oil, The Beauty Spot was created by Nitehawk Cinema’s Beverage Director Jen Marshall to be as timeless and original as The Artist, the film that led to its creation. In this delicious cocktail, high-quality gin is mellowed by the flavors of sweet red vermouth and herbal green chartreuse, making The Beauty Spot a smooth and balanced holiday cocktail – the perfect accent to a classic holiday meal. Dessert is served!
