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. TechCrunch was in charge of most of the preparty planning, but it was my job to name the specialty cocktails. The two drinks were created by Lotus — the fabulously smooth, antihangover vodka — and the names were created by yours truly with the help of my stylish partner in crime, FabSugar.

Sugarade is a potent variation of lemonade with a refreshing essence of lavender. TechPunch is a punch-colored mix of pomegranate and cranberry. Both recipes are super simple and can be easily re-created in your home bar. To take a look at the recipes, read more.
