sometimes you need a night away, but you don’t really have the time to leave town. that’s where summer parties come in really handy. you can style up your backyard for an outdoor movie night, a sleepover or just a fun cocktail party with friends — whatever you do just make it feel like you’ve left town for a little bit. you can even just check into a local hotel in your own city for the night — you’d be surprised to find yourself feeling worlds away sitting poolside and ordering dinner and drinks al fresco! the SKYY Vodka folks invited me to throw my own L.A. SKYY summer pool party for friends so i opted for a soiree, poolside at the beautiful avalon hotel in beverly hills. now i know that sounds super fancy, and it is, but the avalon also has a very chill and friendly vibe that makes you feel warm, welcome, and well taken care of. add a few a SKYY Vodka cocktails and you’ve got yourself a pool party!

ryan, the mixologist at the avalon is one of the city’s best and he conjured up some of the yummiest cocktails for us using the original SKYY Vodka and two of their delicious InfusionsWild Strawberry and Pineapple. it was a perfectly balmy evening under the stars with twinkling globe lights strung across the poolside patio. we lounged, we laughed and we ate very well — with appetizers prepared by the avalon’s viviane restaurant — all paired perfectly with our summery SKYY cocktails. thanks so much to everyone who came out for such a fun pool party, and if you’d like to see more from our evening, check out instagram and the hashtag #SKYYVodka. you can also find all kinds of inspiring cocktail recipes on SKYY’s pinterest boards. cheers!
