Upon first visit, I was really impressed with El Bandido, a Tex-Mex restaurant located in Atlanta’s Little Five Points neighborhood. So, when I was in the middle of planning a super-last minute Happy Hour meetup before the holidays, I knew it was the perfect spot. Not only is the food on point, but their house margaritas are $2.99, every Tuesday. Despite the last minute notice, a nice-sized crowd turned up at my third ever #MeetMeAtTheBar. I had boozy gifts on deck for a few of those in attendance, and the margs had everyone in Lushworthy spirits.
In case you missed it, check out a few photos in the gallery below, and stay tuned for details on the next #MeetMeAtTheBar!
Not sure about you guys, but I’m super excited for fall, especially fall cocktails! Fall technically doesn’t start until September 22, but I find that there’s absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t prepare in advance. To make sure you’re at your most Lushworthy when fall rolls around, I’ve compiled a short list of my favorite, fall-friendly “Lushworthy Creations.” In case you’re new to the site, “Lushworthy Creations” are drink recipes created exclusively by moi.
Pecan Pie Old Fashioned (Pictured Above): I’m not one to name favorites, but the Old Fashioned is easily one of my boozy favs. What I love most about the Old Fashioned is it’s really easy to get creative using a variety of bitters and even a flavored whiskey, which is exactly what I did with my Pecan Pie Old Fashioned.

Skinny Spiked Cider: Not sure why apple cider is a million times tastier than apple juice, I’ll just chalk it up as one of life’s great mysteries. I really had a great time creating this Skinny Spiked Cider given that it was one of the first recipe videos I created for Lushworthy. [Full recipe here]
Boozy Nutella Shake: For me, fall is all about indulgence. And suffice it to say that, Nutella easily falls into the indulgence category. So, for my Boozy Nutella Shake, I opted to combine Nutella with Pecan Pie Whiskey to create a sinfully delicious cocktail. [Full recipe here]
For both fitness enthusiasts and those on the path to a healthier lifestyle, hitting the gym can be a laborsome task. Group workouts have increased in popularity and indulging in post-workout cocktails and bites, ones low on the calories, of course, has become an exciting new trend in fitness.
Presented by Lushworthy.com and Vibe Ride, Cycle & Sip (#CycleAndSip) will give attendees the opportunity to tone up with a cycling class at Midtown Atlanta’s Vibe Ride. To conclude the event, those in attendance will indulge in calorie-conscious cocktails and light bites while mingling with other Cycle & Sip attendees. Attendees will also be treated to giveaways from Athleta and Lushworthy.com.
“With Lushworthy.com turning four-years-old this month, I’m very excited to take part in this unique Happy Hour with Vibe Ride,” Danielle Harling, owner of Lushworthy.com said. “I have a handful of tasty, low-calorie cocktails in mind for Cycle & Sip, and can’t wait to sip and mingle with attendees!”
The premier Cycle & Sip is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 23 from 6:45 PM to 8:45 PM. Tickets for Cycle & Sip can be purchased for $25 at bit.ly/cycleandsipjuly.
