I was enjoying myself at the NCYWFF’s Grand Tasting when I spotted this lovely bottle of Pink Gin, with its equally inviting Pink Label, so I went in for a closer look.  Here’s what I was able to find out about this product  from the Interwebs:

From the country of Spain comes Larios Rosé Mediterranean Flavored Gin; refreshing, smooth, and bright with local Valencia citrus. The flavors perfectly encapsulate the taste of the Mediterranean with citrus fruits rounded off with the perfectly sweet taste of strawberry. Silky and smooth with a predominantly strawberry finish.

I think this spirit is ideally suited for a  Gin Fizz! If you can’t find Larios intoxicating pink treat in your local liquor store, you can by it online Here.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Sparkly Rose in a Water Globe

When I was a child, our family owned an object which I believed to be the most beautiful thing on the planet: a real Red Rose, preserved in wax and displayed inside a water-filled, glass globe which sat on a black plastic base. It captivated me. I would stare at this exquisite object for extended periods of time, thinking it must surely be quite precious and expensive. In hindsight, it was impossibly tacky and kitsch, but when you’re feeling it, who gives a shit? My point is that I flashed-back on that wax-dipped Red Rose in the glass globe immediate when I saw this similarly tacky Pink Glittery Rose in its own fishbowl-like globe for sale on the street outside a Deli that recently opened on the corner of 14th Street and Avenue A. Ah, sweet, sweet nostalgia.

I met owner and soap creator Aura de Leon recently at the White Label Expo, and she was so happy that I recognized Frida’s unique unibrow, which she has captured in her handcrafted soap that is a tribute to the legendary Mexican artist.
