NYFW: Drink Your Way Through Fashion’s Night Out

Fashion’s Night Out might be best known for its celebrity/designer studded events and the ability to shop till 11 pm — but for many shoppers, it’s the ability to shop while boozing that has gained many loyal followers for the most anticipated shopping event of the year.

For those who have other ambitions: Here’s a list of the best places to booze it up during Fashion’s Night Out.

FOR WINE LOVERS

Not into bubbly, but looking for a glass of delicious vino to relax during your shopping spree? Good news for both red AND white wine drinkers: Black Tower, Germany’s most popular wine export, will sweeten your night out. Celebrity fans include Hayden Panettiere, Mischa Barton and the Kardashians. Stylish and easy to drink, the German cult brand is launching a stylish new two-tone bottle jacket during Fashion’s Night Out. Sip on complimentary Black Tower Riesling, Pinot Noir or Rivaner, and nibble on cupcakes by Baked, at Rebecca Taylor (260 Mott Street), or grab a glass of Black Tower at the flagship stores of Catharine Malandrino (652 Hudson Street), Stella McCartney (429 West 14th Street), and Alexander McQueen (417 West 14th Street).

FOR CALORIE COUNTERS

Looking for a low-cal anti-oxidant boost while browsing through designer racks? Stop by Catharine Malandrino (652 Hudson Street), Stella McCartney (429 West 14th Street), and Alexander McQueen (417 West 14th Street) who serve cocktails from VeeV, The World’s First Acai Spirit. Packed with 57% more antioxidants than pomegranates or blueberries, the Brazilian acai berry is the hottest superfruit on the market right now. Mixed with fresh fruit and served over ice, VeeV makes for a healthier tippling than your sugary cosmos or plaid-out margaritas and helps keep your model figure in check!

VEEV’S FASHION NIGHT OUT SODA

2 oz VeeV Açaí Spirit

Club soda

Squeeze of fresh lime

Fresh or frozen (wild) blueberries, for garnish

Build in an ice-filled pilsner glass and stir well. Garnish with the blueberries.

FOR VODKA FANS

Flaunt your stuff this coming Fashion’s Night Out like a Russian supermodel, by sipping on a Glamazon cocktail made with Russian Standard Vodka, Russia’s #1 premium vodka. Follow in the Manolos of Natalia Vodianova and Dasha Zhukova by reaching for a perfectly pink Glamazon cocktail, featuring a pour of Russian Standard Vodka, with its rich wheat-like taste, and topped up with fresh lime and pink grapefruit juice. Or drop by John Varvatos’ shop (122 Spring Street) and grab a citrus-fresh Tolstoy Tang or icy-cold Moscow Mule – both made with Russian Standard – while perusing the racks.
