STYLE } Happy July 4th!
Faribault Woolen Mill, the maker of this beautiful blanket, celebrates its 150th birthday this year. A wonderful American goods revival story, Faribault is one of the lines I love stocking at Salt & Sundry. The Minnesota-born mill was founded in 1856, at the close of the Civil War, and provided military blankets for two World Wars. We have a few of the wool flag blankets at the shops, along with several other styles.
From favorite blankets to favorite cocktails ... Toast the July 4th holiday with one of my favorite summer sips:
makes 1 drink
1.5 oz white rum
1.5 oz Dolin Blanc
1 barspoon Grand Marnier
1 barspoon Jack Rudy Grenadine
Stir well over ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a Luxardo maraschino cherry and orange twist. Enjoy!
