In the city that never sleeps lies a hidden tropical paradise where nectar that can only be described as euphoric flows into your ice chilled chalice relieving your mind from all worries. The stunning taste removes the shackles binding you to your busy schedule, allowing you to take a deep breath and unwind. This amazing blend of fruits and liqueur both excites the senses while relaxes your mind with every sip. I am talking about X-Rated Fusion Liqueur’s new flavor, TROPIX.
Our ship landed at Riff Raffs on 360 Park Avenue South where we were greeted with savory hors d’oeuvres and delicious vibrant concoctions that would make the happiest person yellow with envy. Mouth-watering morsels were accompanied with a vacation in a glass, that surely made it a night to remember. The room was surrounded by DIY stations filled with beautiful people dressed as vibrant as the delicious drinks we were enjoying and this truly made it easy for me to say hello yellow and sail away into the Tropix night with some beautiful creations.
La La Anthony was anything but mellow at the launch of X-Rated Fusion Liqueur’s new flavor TROPIX. Donning a vibrant yellow Veronique Branquinho sweater, La La got behind the bar of Riff Raffs to shake up some colorful cocktails and joked around with the coconuts at the bar. La La was all smiles as she hung out with Po Johnson and friends and kept hush when any questions circulated about the Kardashians.
Daisy Lewellyn, style expert and “Queen of Effortless Chic” hosted the event for friends and La La to celebrate the new flavor launch. Daisy curated 3 DIY stations bringing the yellow color trend to life in a practical, usable way. Guests were encouraged to create their own Hello Yellow necklaces, custom cocktail coasters and yellow cocktail trays all while sipping on signature TROPIX cocktails.
