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?

Oh wow I’ve been to New York before, but I’ve never visited the Botanical Gardens. The indoor and outdoor areas are stunning!

[…] I grew up hearing about my mother’s forced childhood photo shoots on the stone lions at the Brooklyn Botanic, sitting on the hot stone in the heat waiting for my grandfather’s manual camera to slowly capture the perfect frame. By that point, everyone else in the picture was squinting and irritated but my mom’s smile was a ray of sunshine. I like the Brooklyn Botantic because it’s conveniently right around the corner from the Museum and train station and has a great variety of trees and plants in bloom. In the spring there are the cherry blossoms, in the summer the orchids, and currently in the winter season, there’s an Isamu Noguchi sculpture exhibit set in the Japanese garden. If you like gardens, also check out the Bronx Botanical, which is larger but also a bit a ways outside of the city. They also have a gorgeous annual orchid exhibit and cocktail-themed Orchid Evenings. […]
