The Country Star, Culinary Host, and Lifestyle Expert Expands Food Collaboration with Williams Sonoma in Time for Holiday Season
Williams Sonoma, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. portfolio of brands announced the launch of Christmas in a Cup, the latest addition to the food collaboration between the company and Trisha Yearwood. The country star, television host, and three-time New York Times bestselling cookbook author took to her Facebook page to share today’s news (see video here). Yearwood, whose home and lifestyle empire continues to grow, has been collaborating with Williams Sonoma since April 2017 when an original assortment of five food products launched. (The Williams Sonoma and Trisha’s Kitchen collaboration is available at all Williams Sonoma retail locations and online at http://www.williams-sonoma.com/trisha.)
Yearwood has developed a growing lifestyle empire in recent years. The Trisha Yearwood Home Collection encompasses three New York Times Bestselling cookbooks, cookware, furniture, home accessories, area rugs and the newly launched fragrance, Trisha Yearwood. Each Saturday morning, Yearwood’s Emmy-Award winning Trisha’s Southern Kitchen on the Food Network is kicked off by her Facebook Live “pre-show,” T’s Coffee Talk. Both programs have become a weekly hang with Trisha, her friends, and family in a relaxed environment with great food, conversation, and coffee.
The collaboration between Williams Sonoma and Trisha’s Kitchen is focused on bringing Trisha’s cherished family recipes and entertaining style to life. Trisha’s signature cocktail mix, Summer in a Cup has become wildly popular amongst both Williams Sonoma customers and Yearwood fans. The Summer in a Cup cocktail mix re-creates a breezy drink invented by a dear friend of Trisha’s, on a hot summer day at her home in Oklahoma and the new Christmas in a Cup mix celebrates the flavors of the holidays for a refreshing beverage that’s destined to become a new holiday tradition.
“A specialty cocktail is one of my favorite ways to share my holiday spirit. For a fun riff on my ‘Summer in a Cup’ cocktail, I’m starting a new tradition with a Christmas concoction that’s sure to make the season bright,” said Yearwood. “This merry mixer is great for parties because you can pair it with everyone’s favorite beverage —from vodka or sparkling wine to bubbly mineral water.”
The Williams Sonoma and Trisha’s Kitchen collaboration now includes six exclusive food products:
Christmas In A Cup: A vibrant combination of ruby red pomegranate and cranberry juices blended with tangerine and lime. Simply add vodka or another favorite spirit, from gin or sparkling wine to bubbly water, for a refreshing winter cocktail. 25.4 oz. / $16.95

Yearwood possesses one of the most powerful female voices in Country music. The platinum-selling, multiple Grammy, CMA, and ACM winning artist’s twelfth album, PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit, combined both new and iconic songs from her revered catalog in 2014. On television, her larger-than-life talent in The Passion, a two-hour, live musical event on Fox, helped tell one of the greatest historical stories to an audience of millions in March 2016. The first-ever duets collaboration between Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood was released for the Holiday Season. Christmas Together (Pearl Records) features a combination of duets, solo performances, and special guest appearances and debuted at #1 when it was released in November 2016. And of course, most weekends, fans can find her on the road as part of the history-making, and ongoing, Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood.
