New York – As a who’s who of the fashion world descends upon New York City for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in September, Tipsy Diaries will be right there taking in the runway shows by day & staying tipsy by night. Luckily, one of favorites, SKYY Vodka, has been named the Official Vodka of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week as their iconic blue bottle will be working the runways all week.
SKYY Vodka will have exclusive onsite presence and will be served inside the tents at Lincoln Center as well as all official receptions and VIP lounges.
While we’re ultimately there for the cocktails (and some fashion), many insiders, of course, will be taking in the fashion and expressing it to the world. Here are some tips on How to Write a Fashion Review.
Fashion insiders, celebrities, and VIP’s will be treated to four signature SKYY cocktails in the tents, all of which celebrate the 2013 Spring/Summer season’s trends: Classic, Romantic, Glam, and Progressive.
SKYY’s signature cocktails for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week include:
Classic: Bohemian Classic
A lighthearted twist on the timeless daiquiri, the Bohemian Classic reinvents this favorite cocktail with a hint of apple juice. Mixed with lemon juice, simple syrup and muddled raspberries, the Bohemian Classic is served up in a martini glass.
2 oz SKYY Vodka / 2 oz Apple Juice / 0.5 oz Lemon Juice / 0.5 oz Simple Syrup / 6 Raspberries
Muddle all ingredients. Shake and strain in to a martini glass. Garnish with Honey Sugar Rim with little pieces of orange peel.
