Last weekend, I went back
upstate to the Bronx to visit the New York Botanical Garden for Orchid Evenings. We headed there at the perfect time, as it was still light enough in the conservatory to watch the sun set and take some different shots from when I last went to the Orchid Key West exhibit during mid afternoon. Check out those daytime DSLR shots here; all iphone above.
Orchid Evenings is a great excuse to get dressed up and wander the green house with music and cocktails. Each week is sponsored by a different specialty spirit partner, including Jack from Brooklyn, Cooper Spirits, Four Roses Bourbon, Prohibition Distillery, Tuthiltown Spirits and Russian Diamond Vodka. Pick your evening according to this schedule in order to get your cocktail of choice! On the night we chose, the Yvette Cup was the cocktail of the evening and it was deliciously minty, cooling and fruity.
I recommend purchasing tickets off Urban Daddy in order to get an extra free drink!
How did you spend your Easter weekend?
