Zac Posen + Bloody Marys = Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together

Yasha Wallin

As if an excuse were really necessary to drink Bloody Marys on an early Wednesday afternoon while the rest of New York was hard at work... The official reason for this weekday treat was to celebrate the launch the Belvedere Bloody Mary, a new Bloody Mary-flavored vodka line, hosted by celebrated designer Zac Posen. Known for his signature cocktail dresses, Posen expanded his reach by tailoring a brunch menu and cocktail list for the beautiful, art deco-inspired Le Caprice restaurant.

"Brunch can be fabulous when you have the right meal, cocktail and outfit," said Posen. With his closest friends/muses like Genevieve Jones, Charlotte di Calypso, Leigh Lezark, Dani Stahl, Kate Lanphear, Derek Blasberg, Gordin Nicol, Ann and Pat Cleveland, Jessica White, Marjorie Gubelman, Zani Guggleman, Masha Orloff, Stephanie La Cava, Poppy de Villeneuve, Michelle Harper and Mia Rosing in attendance, sampling spirits like the Pineapple Mary and the Bloody Veggie, while dining on steak tartare, his brunch was indeed fabulous. The limited edition menu is available at this Upper East Side mainstay through June 26, but if drinking during the day isn't a good enough excuse to get you all the way uptown, the Belvedere flavor is now available in stores.
