LOS ANGELES FOOD AND WINE RECAP: MODERN LUXURY LOUNGE AND GIN

AUGUST 26, 2014

 

This past weekend was the Lexus Grand Tasting Event at the Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival and – as all those who attended know – it was a blast! If you weren’t able to attend, keep it in mind for next year. There were cooking demonstrations, dozens of wineries plus some breweries, local restaurants, and even celebrity chefs signing cookbooks. At the Celebrity Cruises booth, we turned our space into a Modern Luxury Lounge.

Nolet’s Gin was our partner for the cocktails and they mixed up a refreshing elderflower and strawberry cocktail and a lemonade-inspired cocktail that were a huge hit with attendees. The line was over a dozen people deep at one point and definitely gave the mixologists a speed workout of pouring cocktails!

In addition to pouring gin, we had a “Gin and Grin” photo op. Participants chose where in the world they most wanted to be drinking gin from three different locations: Africa, Australia, and England. We then provided them with a few props for the country they chose and took a picture.

It was great fun seeing everyone dress up and all the pictures can be found on our Gin and Grin Pinterest board. Participants could also post their picture on Twitter or Instagram for the chance to win a $100 VISA gift card.

We also provided attendees of the event a chance to win a Caribbean cruise for two. Check out some of our top Caribbean sailings.

Hope to see you at our next event: Style Week Orange County! We’ll leave you here with some more images from the Lexus Grand Tasting Event at the Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival.
