What's your poison?

A table or a cupboard laden with drinks and mixers is an open invitation to unwind. And one that can be very beautiful in its own right with its alluring glassware, ornaments, and vials - whether permanently on show, or tucked away in an armoire like the one in an Argentinian Estancia I visited that was opened by its owner every evening like clockwork. Either way, for me it is synonymous with the warmest of welcomes home.
