SKYY Vodka Launches New Flavors with the Help of Lady Bunny, Heklina and Candis Cayne

This summer SKYY Vodka worked with three renowned LGBT entertainers to come up with festive cocktails to kick summer celebrations on the right foot—or stiletto!…and keep the party going. 

As the official spirit sponsor of New York’s Heritage of Pride celebration and the sponsor of San Francisco’s Frameline Gay and Lesbian Film Festival this summer, we understand the importance of the LGBT community’s contribution to American society and the importance of finding a moment to relax and celebrate.

Who better to help get the party started than Trannyshack founder Heklina, renowned entertainer Candis Cayne and the legendary Lady Bunny?  These three LGBT personalities have entertained thousands between them have attended and been the stars of quite a few celebrations themselves, and while planning their own summer agendas this year, have collaborated with SKYY whip up these tasty cocktail recipes which were first served to guests in late June at New York’s Heritage of Pride dances on the pier. Since then, Gays everywhere have been and stirring up drink specialties with Skyy Vodka Infusions! Vodka infused with REAL FRUIT FLAVORS.

Lady Bunny is one of the hardest working drag queens in the business. She travels the world constantly doing her live stage show, DJ-ing  at  special events, making appearances in movies and on television. Here in New York she DJ’s at Amalia for Rockit on Fridays and the T Dance at Splash on Sundays.

We have been chasing Le Grande Bunny for  months to get some quotes and finally caught up with her this week! Of course, our talk turned to drinking! ” Everywhere I work, alcohol is served. My singing will drive anyone to drink! But drinking heavily on the road is tough. Especially if I have a gig the next day in another city–they are gonna get the bitter, hungover Bun-Bun. At least until I start guzzling again! And I’ve never understood drinking on planes. Flying already dehydrates you, and if you are buzzed, you are ill-equipped to deal with lost luggage, snippy hotel employees or jet lag. But if you must, order several drinks at once and pull out a credit card claiming that you have zero cash and that you must have been snoozing when they made the “cash only: announcement. Hee hee!

There was a time when I used to drag a whole crew back to my hotel room to keep the party going after clubs closed. But nowadays, you can’t get back on the plane without your ID. So if one of your tricks pinches your pocketbook, you could get stranded in Scranton indefinitely! Not cute. Use the hotel safe when available–especially for international travel. I’m told that the going rate on the black market for a stolen passport is $50,000. So you may only be paying that thai hooker $10, but he could be helping himself to a $50,000 bonus while you two “thai one on.”
