The Lady Who Lunches in Culinary event invitations & coverage, NYC: Where to get your drink on, Product reviews

In honor of their recently-debuted summer label, Lillet, France's most recognized aperitif wine, hosted a launch party atop "Above Allen's" fabulous 7th floor terrace.  Aside from the generous hors d'oeuvre and libations, and a breathtaking view of Manhattan, the evening was consummated with familiar French tunes sung by trio, "Les Chaud Lapins," of Brooklyn. 

Please enjoy my collage of snapshots which capture one of my most memorable evenings yet.

Tres belle!Lillet's new summer label launch party: while so many of the cocktails sounded delightful, I simply could not pull myself away from the "Lillet Sangria." Must. Get. That. Recipe.
