Sexy is… Sassy as… Sweet like… Honey

I've been keeping this in heavy rotation especially #4 "Gimme A Minute" #5 "Spontaneous"

Honey LaRochelle is one of my favorite soul singers in the WORLD! Her range is mind-blowing, from low and raspy to a crisp soprano, she can move you from tears, straight to the dance floor. She did just that this past Wednesday, September 21st, at The Soulcial in Miami’s Midtown. Honey promoted her long-awaited mix-tape and the title speaks volumes. “Clean Lust and Dirty Laundry” brings a new sound from her inaugural collaboration with the eclectic Macy Gray. Honey speaks life to love, trials, intimacy, and does it all to a sexy beat. Born in Vancouver, The Canadian cutie has been dubbed “The Urban Honey Bee”.

I had the honor of meeting the soulful singer, sensational songwriter, and prolific producer and she is indeed an amazing artist. She is one of the most sought after vocalist of her time. Honey has worked and toured the world with a number of solo artists and groups, including Jennifer Hudson, Joss Stone, Laura Izibor, Roberta Flack, and The Brand New Heavies. Honey is clearly growing into her own sound. After hearing her live, you have no choice, but to want to take her home. Hold on tight and get ready to experience “Flight of the Honey B”

Bombay Sapphire East Launch

The weather has been a bit funky in NYC the past week or so, but luckily for Bombay Sapphire East it was gorgeous for their rooftop launch held at 620 Loft & Garden in Midtown Manhattan on September 19.

Sapphire East is the first gin to be launched by Bombay since Bombay Sapphire was launched 25 years ago.

The new Sapphire East is vapor-infused with Thai lemongrass and Vietnamese black peppercorn, along with the 10 botanicals also found in the original Bombay Sapphire: almonds and lemon peel from Spain, coriander seedsfrom Morocco, juniper berries and orris (iris root) from Italy, liquorice fromChina, cassia bark from Indo-China, cubeb berries from Java, grains ofparadise from West Africa, and angelica root from Germany’s Saxony region. The result is a distinctly peppery, citrus finish.

It’s perfect to mix with ingredients like thyme, basil, and cucumber for exotic, Asian-inspired cocktails. The event featured 5 mixologists from Manhattan restaurants, each serving up their signature Sapphire East cocktail.

This was my favorite cocktail: Lower Eastside

Qi Bangkok Eatery and Pok Pok provided the tasty hors d’oeuvres and desserts, which were a perfect complement to the delicious cocktails.
