Sugar + Shake got invited (well, really, Shake got invited and I tagged along; this is how it usually goes with these things) to an event to celebrate St-Germain liqueur’s new carafes. The event was held at Addiction Nightclub at The Modern Honolulu hotel, where, we were told, you can add one of these carafes filled with the delightful signature St-Germain Cocktail to your bottle service for an extra fifty buckeroos.
St-Germain is one of my absolute favorite liqueurs. The evening featured cocktails by the fantastic “Dr. Joey” Gottesman and Tim Rita, as well as the aforementioned carafes of St-Germain Cocktails. We enjoyed Dr. Joey and Tim’s cocktails, well-crafted as always, but we just couldn’t stop drinking from those cute little carafes! Seriously, put some ice in one of those, and an extra long straw, I’ll be happy for the entire evening! (And, thanks to Steve of wag and snap photography, who clued me in that R. Field had them, Sugar + Shake are now in possession of our very own carafe! Woohoo!)
Took a bunch of photos, which I decided to process with a vintage look, since St-Germain has this whole retro Paris thing going. Also, I admit, it hides a multitude of photographic sins, like the not-so-great focus and digital noise, and all the crazy weird colored lights from the nightclub kind of work with the look.
Addiction has this crazy ceiling with light bulbs all over it. Every time we go there, I feel like I’m in some alien egg sac.
