Viniq, America's first shimmery liqueur is excited to announce the expansion of their flavor line with the national introduction of Viniq Glow®.

The look and flavor of the new shimmery fusion is the perfect product to jumpstart the spring season and add a bit of Glow to cocktail brunches across the country.

To celebrate the launch and to inspire your next brunch party, Viniq has collaborated with dining stylist, Courtney Whitmore of @Pizzazzerie and Instagram mixologist, Natalie Migliarini of @BeautifulBooze to give a few quick tips on how to create elegant tablescapes that will amaze your guests, making every moment Insta-worthy.

And Broadwayworld.com Food and Wine has their fantastic ideas for spring and summer entertaining that includes exclusive cocktail recipes using Viniq Glow for our readers.

How to Make Your Brunch Tablescape Shimmer (Courtesy of Courtney Whitmore):

· Tip 1: Choose a beautiful cocktail recipe and glassware to help inspire your theme and set the celebration tone

  • Add Viniq Shimmery Liqueur for a beautiful and simple recipe that excites your guests with its shimmer. To give a Mimosa, a shimmery twist, pair Viniq Glow with Moscato and Orange Juice and pour into a champagne flute to "hold" your cocktail in style.

· Tip 2: Serve up brunch food that compliments your cocktail!

  • To pair with a cocktail like the Mimosa, keep it simple and mini, visit your favorite bakery for fresh muffins, mini pastries and peach preserves.

· Tip 3: Decorate with seasonal fruits and flowers

  • To help carry out your theme, consider little baskets of fresh peaches and peach blossoms.

· Tip 4: Keep your color scheme on par with your cocktail

  • Peaches, pinks, and yellows. Be sure to pull together napkins, plates, and party accessories in the sunrise hues.

· Tip 1: Natural light is your best friend!

  • Shed natural light but avoid allowing too much direct sunlight in your shot.

· Tip 2: Set up your backdrop and then create your cocktail

  • Setting your scene first prevents dilution of your cocktail.

· Tip 3: Get creative with props

  • Fruits and themed figurines add character to your photo.

· Tip 4: Make an impression with a distinctive shimmering cocktail

  • Create a Viniq recipe to make your cocktail shimmer and stand out!

· Tip 5: Garnish, garnish, garnish!

  • Experiment with different garnishes until you find the perfect match. Consider peach slices, edible flowers or an orange twist.
