I am not a big drinker. I am such a light weight that the idea of drinking usually gives me a headache the next morning. But, when given the opportunity… I do like to enjoy a tasty beverage. Over the weekend, I had a handful of drinks at the Healthy Living Summit. Jen told me before we left NY that Philly had a great bring your own bottle policy. So, on Thursday night after we arrived I packed a bottle of wine into my purse and off we went to dinner. Once we were at Farmacia, our bottle was opened (no corking fee!) and we enjoyed a class or two of wine. The next evening was the Healthy Living Summit cocktail party! I was excited to try the Chia cocktail. It was interesting to say the least! I really enjoyed the first one, but after ordering the second one I felt that the seeds congealed a bit, making the drink a bit off.
After the main event on Saturday, Jen, Liz & I headed out to find some drinks. We found ourselves at The Corner. We picked this place on the fact that it had a fabulous rooftop bar and cheap drinks! We all decided to get the Boom Swagger Sangria. At first sip, this sangria surprised us all! The flavor was light and had a kick of grape fruit that really brightened it up. Later that evening, we meet up with a pretty big group of bloggers at the Loews Hotel bar. They had an extensive (and delicious looking) drink list. Most people ended up ordering the Tickled Pink. This amazing thirst quencher is a combination of tequila, chambord black raspberry liqueur, agave nectar, cranberry& lime juice. It was just enough sweet, and went down really easy. Some how, when I woke up on Sunday I wasn’t hung over! I still don’t know that miracle happened.Jen)
