Lushworthy Pics: Keri Hilson Hosts Moet’s Rose Lounge In Atlanta

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to cover Moet’s Rose Lounge at the elegant Mansion on Peachtree and it was truly an amazing event. Hosted by Atlanta singer Keri Hilson, the event was one of four Rose Lounge events that will take place in various cities. The last Rose Lounge was hosted by Kelly Rowland in New York City.

Prior to Keri Hilson’s arrival guests were treated to coconut shrimp, spinach-stuffed pastries, chocolate-covered strawberries, and other decadent treats. DJ Trauma spun everything from Frank Ocean to Gyptian and you know the Moet Rose was of course flowing. The venue was decorated with pale pink flowers and there was practically a Moet bottle everywhere you turned. Finally, at the height of the party Keri Hilson arrived sporting a black leather bustier and cat-eye sunglasses.

Yea, it was a pretty darn good night. Check out a few pics from the event below and be sure to check Lushworthy tomorrow for a short Q&A with Ms. Hilson. Shout out to Jason McCullough for the pics!

Drink Recipe: Have A “Heated Affair” With Partida Tequila

I remember a few years ago when I lived in a student dorm in Brooklyn, I went out to get an iced frappucino from Starbucks one night and everyone thought I was absolutely crazy because it was literally 20 degrees outside. That being said I have absolutely no problem drinking this very, very winter-friendly cocktail from Partida Tequila in the dead of summer because it sounds absolutely delicious. It’s called the “Heated Affair” and it’s basically hot apple cider but with a tequila kick. Oh, and did I mention there’s heavy cream involved? Yummy.

INGREDIENTS

2 oz Partida Anejo Tequila

6 oz Hot Spiced Apple Cider

Heavy Cream

DIRECTIONS

In a small warm wine glass add tequila and hot apple cider. Float heavy cream. Garnish with fresh nutmeg over cream.
