Lushworthy Pics: Russell Westbrook & Actor Darren Criss Sip On EFFEN Vodka Cocktails At Designer Richard Chai’s FNO Event

The EFFEN Vodka cocktails were of course flowing at designer Richard Chai’s Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) party last week as were the celebrity appearances. Joining the designer at his EFFEN-sponsored shindig were NBA gold medalist Russell Westbrook and “Glee” actor Darren Criss. Aside from Chai, the star of the night was EFFEN’s “Bold Ginger” cocktail which received praise from both the designer and Criss. What’s in this amazing cocktail you ask? Well, I’ve included the drink recipe for the “Bold Ginger” below as well as a few pictures from the event. Enjoy!

Oh, and on a completely non-Lushworthy note don’t you just love Russell Westbrook’s animal-print shirt paired with those olive pants?
