One of the perks of being a Brunching Bitch is getting invited to some really fun events. Summer is here in Chicago, and it is especially fun to attend events when it is so nice outside! You want to know what else doesn’t hurt? Being invited to a private dinner party with a bunch of other fabulous lady-bloggers, with a booze-inspired menu cooked table side by a private chef, at a beautiful mansion in the heart of River North.
Thanks to the fabulous marketing ladies from Drizly, the beverage delivery app, I got invited to such a lovely event. Drizly is the leading on-demand alcohol delivery company transforming the way consumers buy alcohol online across the U.S. and Canada. Powered by partnerships with local retailers in the markets Drizly serves, legal-age drinkers can shop hundreds, even thousands, of products right from their smartphone or desktop for delivery within the hour.
It is really cool what they do, and we are definitely fans. It is so easy to download the app, and add items to your cart; within the hour you have booze delivered right to your door.
To celebrate their presence here in Chicago, the Drizly girls hosted a #drizlydatenight right here in Chicago at a beautiful rental house that boasted 7 bedrooms a gorgeous living room with a wet bar and custom Drizly cocktails created by their Chief Cocktail Officer, Trish. I sipped on a yummy gin and cucumber libation, the Gin Basil Smash, garnished with a cucumber ribbon. It was divine.
They hired a private chef, who created delicious appetizers and a four course menu, with every dish made with, what else? Booze! I must say, that the best part of the whole night was getting to meet some of the other fabulous bloggers who share a love for Drizly. We all bonded over our love of yummy food and delicious cocktails.
All in all, we are big fans of Drizly, it is just what cocktail loving ladies like us need. Life gets busy, and with every thing going on, it is nice to know you can always rely on a cocktail when you need one.
