We clocked out of work a bit early yesterday after receiving an invite to attend the launch of Cupcake Vodka Original at Earls V Lounge. With the sun shining, the day just beckoned for a cooling cocktail, so we headed out the door and down to Yaletown to check out the latest goods from the makers of Cupcake wines.
We ventured up to V Lounge and were immediately taken toward the central bar area where we were invited to select from four signature creations made especially for the launch event. First up: Razzmatazz, blended with basil that is pretty much equated to pure summer fresh goodness. Next, we moved on to sample their sugar-free vanilla Mojito and stole a sip the Hot Tropic (infused with fresh Jalapeno), a perfectly spiced mix that will definitely heat things up this summer.
As the room continued to fill with the after-work crowd, we mixed and mingled our way around, intermittently sampling sushi bites, mini crostini with carpaccio, panko-incrusted sundried tomatoes wrapped in prosciutto and, of course, cupcakes. Simply put: yum.
The laidback feel of V Lounge provided a great space to kick back and take in the street scene below and the event itself was perfectly conducive to striking up casual conversation with other noteworthy young professionals while sampling.
