a summer fête with SKYY Barcraft / sfgirlbybay

every once in a while i get invited to throw a party to help celebrate a new brand, and those events are definitely a favorite part of my job. so when SKYY Barcraft asked me to introduce you to their new line of flavored vodkas, how could i resist? pretty and delicious cocktails, gorgeous flowers, globe lights, fantastic food with great friends in a beautiful space — i’m in! last week we took over the lovely gallery event space AvenueSF and transformed it into a summer cocktail lounge — fine art by gail lehman created the perfect backdrop. complete with SKYY Barcraft’s Margarita Lime; Watermelon Fresca; and White Sangria flavored vodkas. SKYY Transforms the Process of Making Cocktails into Two Simple Steps – SKYY Barcraft plus Soda or a favorite mixer — so simple to make, we thought it’d be fun to let our guests get their barcraft on with a DIY Cocktail Garnish bar and dress up their drinks — so much creativity! so much fun!

to dress up our SKYY Barcraft cocktails we used gorgeous glassware from frances lane and i enlisted ashley rose to put together some super pretty garnishes — from your ‘must-have’ drink umbrellas and pretty striped straws to fresh fruits, like watermelon balls, lime & orange wheels, blackberries and raspberries, and fresh mint — but the pièce de résistance? edible flowers! they added the wow in some already really delicious and delectable looking SKYY Barcraft drinks! scrumptious appetizers like crab cocktail and empanadas from kitchit complimented our cocktails to perfection, christine herrin made our beautiful chalkboard menu, and the fabulous emerson and benjamin at ampersand flower shop and design studio helped bring our summer party to life — their arrangements were just over the top stunning — from big huge bouquets to wandering vines along our globe lights — everything looked magical.

Without needing additional bar equipment or the skills of a seasoned bartender, SKYY Barcraft is providing us the ease of enjoying mixology at home without a lot of fuss. SKYY Barcraft Margarita Lime delivers the tangy-sweet taste of a true margarita without having to slice a single lime. White Sangria captures the favorite libation of Spain without wine or a trip to the fruit stand. And, Watermelon Fresca allows you to experience the fresh, cool taste of watermelon all year long. essentially, SKYY Barcraft has hacked the modern cocktail! if you’d like to see more from our dressed up drinks, follow @SKYYVodka on instagram and check out the evening’s hashtag #barcraftbybay.
