Hendrick’s Gin Celebrates Atlanta Influencer Chilly-O’s “Half-Birthday” With Lavish Dinner Party

Hendrick’s Gin hosted yet another curiously opulent event here in Atlanta. This time around, the city’s creatives and influencers (and me!) gathered in a cozy, private space at Negril Village for a dinner party held to celebrate Chilly O’s “Half-Birthday.” Yes, his Half-Birthday. Considered the Creative Godfather of Atlanta, Chilly-O has likely helped pave the way for a number of your faves in the creative realm. In addition to Chilly-O, other notables at the dinner party included rapper Kap G and photographer Cam Kirk.

Hendrick’s Gin’s pre-dinner cocktails proved once again that gin drinks are fully capable of slaying. My personal favorite, the “Fall All Over” was a seasonal cocktail with a spicy kick (thanks to the addition of ginger beer). For those curious, I’ve gone ahead and listed the recipe for the “Fall All Over” at the end of this post. Dinner was fittingly served family style, with plates of jerk chicken, plantains, and other Caribbean bites placed alongside table settings adorned with gorgeous roses. Suffice it to say that it was a good night.

Both cocktail lovers and the curious converged in Atlanta for Hendrick’s Gin’s Surrealist Soiree, late last month. I had the opportunity to check out the intimate event, and in true Hendrick’s fashion, Surrealist Soiree boasted unique talent, tantalizing bites, and of course, amazing and creative craft cocktails.
