“I like large parties.” The great Gatsby
It happened just a few days ago Taste of Runway was the star of the party organized by Grazia and Grand Marnier. I would have never imagined seeing two of the cocktails I created for the project #grandmarnierlovescharm printed on a poster and installed next to the swimming pool in the exclusive location of Ceresio 7 (i.e. the restaurant of Dean and Dan Caten, the twin who founded Dsquared). Let me say “wow!”. But what’s more, I would have never imagined seeing all those wonderful people having a good time sipping the delicious Earl Grey and the other fabulous cocktail created especially for the party. Here you can find the recipe: it is a reinterpretation of the Moscow Mule cocktail, which was created in New York in the 40s, but updated and enhanced by hints of Grand Marnier, violet liqueur and fresh mashed blackberries. Do you know the secret for a great party? Knowing how to organize it perfectly, without neglecting any detail, exactly like it happened a few days ago. Respectable guests, background music, suffused lighting: these are just some of the elements that will transform you into the new Michael Alig, the most famous night party organizer in New York (which inspired the film “Party Monster”). You could start by following these tips, for example…
May the style be with you!
