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 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!
