Now to our favorite holiday of the year! CINCO DE MAYO! Sean Beck – Sommelier, Beverage Manager, and “Spirit Guys” for Hugo’s, Backstreet Cafe, Prego and Trevisio is our go to guy when it comes to a fine cocktail. We stopped by Hugo’s (our weekly stop-shh!) and asked Sean to give us his favorite Seasonal Cocktail for anyone having a Fiesta.
As we approach the oh so festive Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo, we want to say Happy Anniversary to Laura and Sati! We (Occasio) cannot believe that it has already been a year since we did their wedding on May 5, 2012 at The St. Regis Houston. Seems like not so long ago we were planning how we were going to incorporate some fun Cinco de Mayo elements throughout the wedding, in honor of the infamous date! We had a blast working with this couple.
We styled this wedding to celebrate the couples love for tradition, celebration and the meeting of four cultures. This black tie affair, began with tequila shots, paired with ballads from Mariachi’s, Turkish and Persian dancing matched with Turkish coffee, hookahs and percussion’s from a Brazilian carnival performance had every guest on their feet.
