Taking Belvedere & Jimmy Choo to New Heights!
Belvedere Vodka, the world’s first luxury vodka, is synonymous with fashion and glamour around the world, playing host to key parties during London and New York Fashion Week every year. Cementing this fashion association is Belvedere Vodka’s latest collaboration with luxury brand Jimmy Choo that will run at participating bars from July to August 2013. A sensual collaboration, five of the city’s top bars have crafted signature Belvedere Vodka cocktails to bring out the sensual and provocative inner self when donning a pair of exquisite Jimmy Choos while sipping on the cocktails!
The sky’s the limit when one hits the gorgeous bar scene at Marini’s on 57. The night was early and yet the party was in full swing with many beautiful people adding to the already magnificent ambience and city skyline. It was a night of old and new with people, cocktails and jokes.
As soon as we were seated, our thirst was quenched by Marini’s on 57’s Belvedere Vodka cocktails! I lost count of how many repeats of the cocktails I had simply because they were so addictive and luscious…
Vodka has always been my favourite liquor simply because the alcohol is soft and smooth on the palate. Though it doesn’t need much to be savoured, adding other juices or ingredients also brings up another dimension to the vodka. I had cranberry mixer with Belvedere vodka and it was simply flirty and refreshing! We may have started off with special mixers of juices with Belvedere Vodkas but we ended with sampler shots after shots of the four signature cocktails available at Marini’s.
We were treated to a launch on the Belvedere Vodka with fireworks that night! I simply can’t decide which is yummier… the vodka or the models…
Faces that night
Redelicious reminds me of sweet berries jazzed up with smooth velvety vodka! Ultra creamy, this cocktail glides down the throat like an electrocuted smoothie. Flavors are smooth and luscious, downing one shot is simply not enough… go for the full size!
The only one not cream infused, the Dankowskie Mule is brought alive with lime, ginger and coriander. The shot is an interesting combination with a citrus and gingery tang ending with a hint of bitter edge.
When it’s named as Juju Sour, you know you are in for a sour note! Utterly rich and creamy, I am glad that there was lime to balance out the richness. Tasting similar to eggnog, there is a lovely hint of vanilla minus the spices in this one.
JC57 tasted fairly similar to Juju Sour with the addition a hint of spice. It has a fruity edge of lemon and orange and is silky and creamy to boot!
