RockResorts NYC Media Event Highlights

New York, NY. – September 24, 2010 – The RockResorts annual New York City media event took place at Vanderbilt Suites last evening, Thursday, September 23rd. Each resort – from the slopes to the seas – was present, and whether you were there in person or in spirit, here are some takeaways based on the night’s experiences:
All guests are offered the opportunity to donate $1 when they stay at RockResorts / Vail Resorts Hospitality lodging properties. In Colorado and in South Lake Tahoe, the donation goes directly to the partnership with the National Forest Foundation and has generated more than $1.7 million in contributions to forest health projects in local communities. In Jackson, WY the program benefits the Grand Teton National Park Foundation, in Santa Fe, Hyde State Park and in Miami, Surfriders Foundation. Tonight, RockResorts has made a donation on your behalf. Click here to learn more about this program.
There were two signature drinks served this evening. Here are recipes for you to enjoy the cocktails at home:
The Lavender Orange Drop
Fill shaker with ice
Muddle 1.5 Valencia oranges into shaker
Add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar into shaker
Add 1/8 oz of Grand Marnier
Small pinch of Lavender, crush in hand, add to shaker
Add 2 oz of Kettle One
Shake Vigorously!
Filter through bar and julepe strainer (holding them back to back)- this will prevent the lavender from getting in the drink
Garnish with ultra thin-halved slice of orange
Passionate Kiss *Original Recipe by Gregg Bernstein

1oz Coconut Rum
