While I was in New York City for the BlogHer conference and other fun stuff, I was able to attend a cocktail party at the rooftop club, Salon de Ning, of The Peninsula New York.

The cocktail party was beautiful and fun and I loved being able to hang out with my friends and meet so many people I admire. The food served at the party was delicious, as you would expect at a food blogging event, and the conversation fun and lively. I tasted club’s signature drink, the Lychee Sling, and think I probably sighed it was so tasty. So much so that I went right up and asked if I could have the recipe for the drink and get a couple of photographs of it to share on my blog.

Now, this is where real friends come in. I had my camera with me, but was sporting my travel lens (18-200mm) instead of my food lens (55mm). Luckily, Amy was there with the proper equipment and came to my rescue. And Erika stepped in to give me a hand since it was so dark on the rooftop to get the shot just perfect.

Great friends indeed.

Just look how beautifully Terence of Salon de Ning styled the drink! I am still so impressed!
