Happy Hour: Sugarade and TechPunch

Last Thursday night was the PopSugar/TechCrunch party — don't worry lots more party details to come! — in Los Angeles.

The Sugarade sounds luscious...I don't have any lavendar so I'll have to use homemade lemonade. I'll definitely look for the Lotus brand vodka. It sounds ultrasmooth!

The Sugarade was my favorite; the lavender really added an interesting flavor, but just a hint.
