leave a comment »

Not every party around Obama happens around the Beltway. New York City will be the location where the “PiscObama Sour” is expected to become the star among  business, government and social jet-setters on December 18 at 6 pm at m1-5 located at 52 Walker Street in the TriBeCa area.

Organized by Golden Networking, the “PiscObama Sour” is the Obama-inspired Peruvian pisco sour to be served and developed in partnership with Macchu Pisco, a leading Peruvian pisco brand available in the U.S.

I spoke with Edgar Perez, founder of Flavors of Peru who launched Golden Networking, about his upcoming event, and he said:

“Our Holiday Kick-Off Party TriBeCa Style will be the first of networking events we will organize every month. As we expect to attract an upscale and diverse audience, we thought it would be important to promote our favorite cocktail, the PiscObama Sour. For more than a few of our guests, it will be their first time enjoying the flavors of the authentic Peruvian Pisco.”

It is a great opportunity to enjoy a Peruvian pisco sour in the Big Apple!
