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.

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.
