Excerpt from the feature on Style Me Pretty Living:
What is a better way to get through long city summers than having a ladies day of lounge on one of the cities best rooftops? We pulled together a wonderful afternoon for our best girlfriends to get away from the land locked city with a tequila tasting, lounging with fun cocktails, and breezy sun bathing. Starting the afternoon off, guests were greater with cheery lounges setup with personalized welcome boxes featuring cookies from Freshbakes, sunscreen, sunglasses, and Essie nail polishes. We wanted to welcome them with our summer favorites! After enjoying cocktails and catching up, we setup a fiesta themed tequila tasting and pairings with snacks. We spent the afternoon eating, lounging in the sun, and catching up. I especially loved that Kip the Maltese puppy made a surprise appearance and even let us indulge him in a photo shoot!
We wanted to share our favorite cocktail with guests, and I have included the recipe to share with your readers.
