This week Naluda magazine was invited to a Ciroc Holiday School of Mixology event at St. Felix in L.A. Sounds great huh?, and it really was! We were shown how to create 7 different delicious drinks with Ciroc,  on your nights out and you see the  bartenders do their magic they make it look effortless, I got there in the end but it took a long time! if I were bartending I would have definitely not got many tips or lost customers! but happy to say that the finished result were spot on!

Amongst several bloggers and editorial writers from different media outlets we were all there to learn about all of Ciroc’s new flavors and also their amazing initiative of #CîrocTheNewYear.  Every time you tweet with this hashtag a $100 dollars will be donated by Ciroc to safe driving initiatives in conduction with Uber. (up to 1 million dollars). Also your tweet gets displayed on a billboard in Times Square, yes thats right your tweet displayed on the Times Square Billboard!.

We had a great evening cocktail making with the experts and are happy to support such a great cause with #CîrocTheNewYear.
