Lushworthy News: Absolut Elyx To Sell Their Copper Pineapples To Benefit Water For People

Absolut Eyx Copper Pineapple

If you’re like me, then you’ve probably spent an absurd amount of time swooning over Absolut Elyx’s copper pineapples. If you follow the brand on Instagram, you’ve likely seen countless pictures of these gorgeous drinking vessels. And for the longest time, it seemed as though they were out of reach from us normal folks.

Well, here comes the good news! Absolut Elyx is now selling their copper pineapples for $84.99 on (You can also purchase both a copper pineapple and a bottle of Absolut Elyx for $119.99) As if this wasn’t already great news, Absolut Elyx will use the proceeds from the sale of the copper pineapples and bottles of Absolut Elyx to benefit Water For People.

According to a press release, “For every Elyx Pineapple sold, access to safe water will be provided for one month. For every bottle of Elyx sold anywhere in the world, they’ll provide access to safe water for one week (140 liters) for someone in need.”

Lushworthy Pics: D’USSE Cognac & Cohiba Cigars Head To Atlanta For D’USSE Lounge


With D’USSE Cognac being kind enough to host their D’USSE Lounge here in Atlanta for the Falcons vs. Saints game last week, you would think that the Falcons would be considerate enough to actually win! Sheesh! Although that tragic game put a swift end to the Falcons’ perfect record, I can say first-hand that D’USSE and their friends at Cohiba Cigars sure know how to throw an amazing football fete.

Attendees at D’USSE Lounge, which took place at Scales 925 in downtown Atlanta, enjoyed a variety of D’USSE cocktails including The Perfect Pour, Sidecar, and The Vintage. I loooved the Sidecar! For whatever strange reason, cognac is on the intimidating side for some drinkers. If you happen to fall under that category (no judgement here), you should start off with a cocktail like the Sidecar whenever you’re ready to take the plunge into the wonderful world of cognac. It’s delicious.

I’m not much of a cigar smoker, but those partaking in a few puffs of the Cohiba cigars offered at D’USSE Lounge seemed to enjoy themselves.

Lushworthy Pics: Alton Brown Hosts Aqua Vino At The Georgia Aquarium

Aqua Vino 2

Each year, near the start of fall, the Georgia Aquarium hosts Aqua Vino, one of the biggest events of the year. The annual event is held to help in raising funds for the Georgia Aquarium’s animal research and conservation effort. I had the opportunity to attend Aqua Vino this year, which was hosted by television personality Alton Brown, and I have to tell you, it’s quite the place to be if you’re a food or wine lover. And if you’re both, then consider Aqua Vino a little slice of heaven.

The Georgia Aquarium, one of the largest aquariums in the world, already makes for a magical venue. Combine the ambiance of the aquarium with a live jazz band, perfectly-placed decor, and it kinda feels like you’ve been transported to a place a tad more exotic than the city of Atlanta. I enjoyed quite a few sips and bites during Aqua Vino, and despite being the beer, wine, and cocktail lover that I am, I have to say that one of my favorites came in cupcake form thanks to Georgetown Cupcakes.

And because I was a tad busy sipping on the finest of wines and munching on the tastiest cuisine Atlanta has to offer, I didn’t snap too many pictures. Thankfully though, I did get my hands on a few pictures, courtesy of the Georgia Aquarium. Check ‘em out below. And if you’re interested in offering your support to the Georgia Aquarium, you can find more info on their website.

Oktoberfest Fun At The Andaz Wall Street’s Beergarden

Andaz Wall Street Beergarden (2)

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably recall seeing a photo of several large mugs of beer during my #LushworthyInNYC visit to New York. Well, during my visit, my friends and I were able to take part in a little Oktoberfest fun at The Beergarden at the Andaz Wall Street. I’m more of a cocktail gal, so unfortunately, I tend to sometimes neglect the wonderful world of beer.

I’m a picky beer drinker, but at the end of the day I do consider myself a beer drinker overall. My friends on the other hand, not so much. You’ll never catch them with a brew in hand. While at The Beergarden at the Andaz Wall Street, we all opted for a mug of Schöfferhofer Grapefruit. And let me tell you…I. Am. In. Love. It was delicious. I had no idea what to expect. It’s heavy on the fruity side, which I enjoyed. Thankfully, it also lacks that grapefruit bitterness that I personally dread. Oh! And believe it or not, my non-beer-drinking friends might actually be on board the brew bandwagon thanks to Schöfferhofer Grapefruit.

Other beers served at The Beergarden include Radeberger Pilsener, Erdinger Weissbier, Bluepoint Oktoberfest, and Lagunitas IPA. All beers can be purchased in regular glasses or large, shareable boots.

We also had the opportunity to sample two different, Sigmund’s pretzels during our visit. One was a cheese pretzel while the other was a standard, salted pretzel. The salted pretzel was heavy on the salty side. No bueno. But the cheese pretzel, like most everything made with cheese, was pretty tasty.

The Beergarden is of course outdoors, and we really lucked out with the weather in New York during our visit. It was perfect for relaxing outside while sipping on a new favorite.

If you’re hoping to visit The Beergarden, take note that it’s open until the end of October, Tuesdays through Fridays.

***A complimentary food and drink tasting was provided by the Andaz Wall Street, but the thoughts in this post are fully my own.
