If you’ve ever wondered how to mix the perfect martini or how to host a dinner party without getting stuck in the kitchen, Tim Laird is your man. Known as America’s CEO (Chief Entertaining Officer), Tim makes a slew of media appearances every year, spreading his insights about hosting great soirees on the behalf of liquor producer Brown-Forman. We’ve been helping Brown-Forman promote its new cinnamon-flavored liqueur, Tuaca Cinnaster in Colorado, so last month we brought Tim in to help with the effort.
His first stop was 9News’ Colorado & Company, where Tim offered tips on how to create a special Super Bowl spread, complete with Cinnaster-inspired cocktails. Click here to check out Tim’s interview with Denise Plante. The author of That’s Entertaining, also did a similar segment on the Everyday show, which you can view here.

In the evening, Tim hosted a Cinnaster cocktail tasting and contest at Ocean Prime. Writers and editors from Westword, Blacktie Colorado, Denver Life, 303 Magazine, Indulge in Denver, and Out Front Colorado sampled specially-crafted Cinnaster creations and chose one to serve as Ocean Prime’s Featured Cocktail for February. The winner was the “Cinnaster Spiked Cocoa,” a warm blend of Tuaca Cinnaster, Godiva chocolate liqueur, hot cocoa, Aztec chocolate bitters and Cinnaster-infused whipped cream. The panel of judges called the cocoa cocktail, “A great winter drink,” and “great on a ski day.” Ocean Prime will have the drink available all month, if you’re craving something warm on a chilly day.
