Pharrell and the folks over at Diageo really went all out for their Atlanta Qream Liqueur launch. Rather than hosting the event at a random lounge or club they chose to have the event at a private mansion in Buckhead. The venue really was breathtaking and I’m glad they didn’t take the typical launch event at a club route. It was much more intimate.
We all arrived at the mansion via shuttle bus which dropped us off in front of the mansion which was illuminated with bright pink lights. While the event took place outside at the pool area there were still quite a few Qream-influenced decorations on the inside, mostly pale pink and orange flowers. I’ve been eager to try Qream for quite some time so you know the first thing I had to do was get a drink. The first drink I tried was the “La Reine Magnifique” which consists of Strawberry Qream and coconut-flavored vodka. Of the various Qream drinks I tried last night I have to say that this one was my favorite. As I mentioned before on here I’m not a huge peach fan so I had to pass on the Peach Qream drinks. But I did try the Strawberry Qream straight and mixed with Godiva liqueur (“Chocolate Dipped Strawberries”).
Aside from the Qream cocktails there was also a number of tasty treats circulating throughout the night and they included my new favorite shrimp corndogs, miniature lemon cupcakes, fries with sea salt, and of course the mandatory slider’s. Jermaine Dupri and DJ Tracy Steele provided the tunes for the evening and other celebrities spotted included former Atlanta Falcons player Jamal Anderson, DJ Drama, Chilli, and more.
