Stoli Gets Social Launch Party

The day started off terrible for me and was one of the worse day I had for a long time. From the moment I stepped into the office, I was scolded up until minutes before I was leaving office with some reprieve coming from lunch break. Planned work for the day didn't budge a millimeter because I was halted by other matters. When I was driving to the party, it started raining heavily and I could barely see the roads. Even unwittingly broke the clips of my car's side skirt because I couldn't see the bump on the narrow streets of KL in the downpour.

I arrived at the party wet and it seemed to be a boring one but later was proven otherwise and am glad that I had went to this party. It melted my anguish and sorrow away and however bad the day was earlier didn't matter anymore.

The Stoli Gets Social Party was held at a place called Mango's Tropical Café:
Located at the busy streets (but not so busy that evening) of Changkat Bukit Bintang:
This is the street where I have the impression expatriates, foreigners and tourists throng. Where you find more of them than locals around and that what turns this vicinity into a bustling nightlife.

Back at the Stoli (short for Stolichnaya) party, I congregate with familiar faces and with the nice cool drink of Stolichnaya Premium Vodka, I was gradually having the blues melt away. Understandably, the opening speech didn't come on till very much later than the stipulated time since it was raining quite a bit.
So what else to do but indulge in more excellent cocktails that contain Stolichnaya Vodka in it and mingle with friends and make new ones.

I started off and ended off mostly drinking this concoction:
Called the Stoli Gimlet where it's comprise of Stoli Vodka, fresh lime juice and simple syrup.

Also tried the Stoli Salted Apple:
Tasted exactly like the green apple that I took from the buffet table, salted LOL.
For this cocktail, it's made with Stoli Salted Karamel instead Stoli Premium Vodka.

The Stoli range of products unveiled during that night includes Stoli Premium, the Stoli Indulgent range - Stoli Saltem Karamel, Stoli Chocolat Razberi, Stoli Chocolat Kokonut and Elit by Stolichnaya, the ultra-luxury brand of the Stoli family and the highest rated white spirit in the world.
Having a shot of the premium Vodka, I found that I am drawn to it's exquisite taste. It tasted like no other vodka I've tried before. It is smooth and had a strong sense of it's vodka taste even after it has went down my throat. I can understand why this is called a premium vodka and it had changed my opinion on it.

The night ended for me with more tasting of the alcohol and light chatter with some newfound friends as well as familiar ones and surprisingly an ex-colleague of mine.

Other than the launch of it's products, the purpose of the party too was to announce the launch of Stolichnoya's social media campaign.
