NYC's Bright Side of Summer

We are in the last stretch of summer.  Contrary to popular belief, there are plenty of outdoor activities in New York City.  I was able to indulge in that warm weather treat of a cruise down the East River and a thorough sampling of Malibu Island Spiced cocktails with my fellow bloggers.

An August afternoon with Glam bloggers always warrants a cute outfit.  My fellow fashionistas were rocking gorgeous print dresses and brightly colored necklaces.  I had on a silk abstract print All Saints dress with a Weng Meng fascinator and Sigerson Morrison sandals.  I must admit, after a few delicious Malibu Ginger drinks, the wooden heels felt rather silly on a swaying boat.  I was also reminded that every once in awhile, you need to be a tourist in your own city and admire the grandeur that is the Statue of Liberty. 

Cranberry and Malibu Island Spiced was the favorite among the ladies.  The very few men on the boat were partial to the Malibu Island Spiced Rum and Coke.  There was a healthier coconut water beverage which complemented the coconut flavors and spices that Malibu Island Spiced already had, but let’s face it, we were there to indulge.

The Glam Bloggers and I got off the boat to dig our designer heeled toes in the sand further downtown at the Beekman Beer Garden and Beach Club.  There’s always a temptation in a beach environment to gorge yourself on sugary festival cocktails.  What I liked about Malibu Island Spiced is that it uses a more natural Truvia as sweetener to lessen the guilt.   

How are you enjoying the last few weeks of the season? Do you have a favorite summer drink recipe?

Spiced Rum’s Finally Seen the Light. Malibu Island Spiced combines Malibu’s signature blend of Caribbean rum and coconut liqueur with light spices, smoked vanilla, cinnamon and a touch of sweetness with Truvia®, zero-calorie sweetener. The result is a lo-cal, big-flavored spiced rum alternative. Find out more at https://www.facebook.com/Maliburum/app_501945323176523
