Kings’ Highway and We Shall Fight on Beaches Cocktails
The inaugural Men’s New York Fashion Week is a definite sign that men’s fashion is mainstream, which parallels the recent rise of mixology in recent years. Both rooted in creativity, BACARDÍ partnered men’s fashion designers – Ovadia & Sons and Thaddeus O’Neil – with top New York mixologists –Jeff Bell and Maxwell Britten, respectively – and invited them to create custom cocktails using Grey Goose vodka and BACARDÍ Gran Reserva rums inspired by the designers’ collections that were shown at NYFW: Men’s.
These cocktails – three for each collaboration – were served at exclusive after parties on Tuesday, July 14th honoring each of designers and the incredible accomplishment of showcasing their designs at NYFW: Men’s. Jeff Bell collaborated with Ovadia & Sons to create custom Grey Goose cocktails while Maxwell Britten used BACARDÍ Gran Reserva in his original recipes inspired by Thaddeus O’Neil’s collection.
