Lushworthy News: Malibu Kicks Things Up A Bit With “Malibu Black”

As a blogger/writer my job is to be unbiased, but I gotta tell ya I’m a huge fan of coconut-flavored liquors. I’ve yet to find one that I didn’t care for. So as a coconut connoisseur you can only imagine how excited I was to hear about the new Malibu Black. Malibu’s latest product boasts a “darker color, lighter coconut flavor, and 70 proof label.” I love Malibu, but I do find that it can be quite sweet and not as potent as other rums. I’ve yet to try Malibu Black, but as soon as I get my hands on it I’ll be on here with a review and some fun drink recipes.

Lushworthy Pics: Heineken & New Era Collab On New Cap, “The Blackout”

With their Red Star Access tour featuring rappers Kanye West, Pusha T, and CyHi The Prynce plus their latest collab with New Era, Heineken is really becoming the cool kid in town when it comes to the world of booze. Usually the worlds of beer and fashion don’t mesh too well, but Heineken and New Era have pulled off it off with their “The Blackout” cap. The cap flaunts a clean “black on black” look and features the Heineken seal. I have to admit that I’m a little surprised that Heineken didn’t incorporate their signature Red Star anywhere on the cap. I’m impressed with the cap, but what really sold me is the amazing case it comes in. I have to give Heineken their props for getting all chic on us.

Yes, you read that right…a bikini made of glass, inspired by Skyy Vodka’s iconic blue bottle. If that’s not Lushworthy then I don’t know what else is.

Rapper/Producer Pharrell Williams Speaks On His New Qream Liqueur (Video)

First off, Pharrell gets all his “lush points” taken away for stating that he’s “not much of a drinker” while at the same time promoting a brand new liquor. I find that a little odd, but maybe that’s just me. Anywho, Pharrell celebrated the launch of Qream Liqueur (a partnership with Diageo) in Beverly Hills last night and to be honest it sounds like he’s got himself a nice little product. The line will consist of strawberry cream and peach cream flavors and will retail for about $29.99 per bottle.
