Crown Royal Vanilla Tasting @ Lilt Lounge #vanillasogood

I was invited to the swanky Downtown Miami lounge – Lilt Lounge, for an exclusive preview of the new Crown Royal Vanilla. Crown Royal Vanilla is a blend of hand-selected Crown Royal whiskies infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a unique whisky bursting with vanilla flavor and Crown Royal’s superior smoothness.

The evening kicked off with delicious Crown Royal inspired cocktails, light hors d’oeuvres, and a guided tasting by Stephen Wilson, Crown Royal’s national brand ambassador.

 It was definitely a fun night of cocktails, food and catching up with friends. Crown Vanilla is definitely a whisky for all occasions, and very versatile. Crown Royal Vanilla tastes great when mixed with sodas (for a Vanilla take on hard sodas), used to create a Vanilla twist on classic cocktails (like a Vanilla Old Fashioned and Vanilla Hot Toddy) or simply sipped on the rocks.Mix it with sodas for a Vanilla flavored hard soda, you can use it for a vanilla twist on cocktails such as an Old Fashioned, or simply sipped on the rocks.
