Bacardi Guy Rafael Nadal Mixes It Up at Bar and in DJ Booth

21 July 2013/MALLORCA, Spain – AS always, Rafael Nadal was a gracious (and game) host at "The Champions' Party."

On his home island, he welcomed friends and "Mix with Rafa" promotion winners to the posh villa, Castell de Manresa. It was a night of music, mixing, mixology and more. (See video at top).

As the Bacardi Limited Global Social Responsibility Ambassador, RN encourages those who consume Bicardi (and any other alcoholic beverages) to pace themselves, for instance, by taking a "Time Out" between drinks. During the respite, a body can drink water or enjoy the signature "Rafa's Champions' Mix." The mocktail is described as a "refreshingly sweet apple and ginger beer based non-alcohol drink."

Bicardi's “Champions Drink Responsibly” campaign drives home the message that it is possible to act like a Champion when drinking alcoholic beverage by adopting a few behaviors. Appointing a designated driver is one.

The names of "Mix with Rafa" winners were pulled in a drawing. Winners came from around the world, including Austria, Singapore and Venezuela. Of legal drinking age, they correctly answered a few questions about responsible drinking. For their efforts, they won the trip to Mallorca and a chance to mix it up with RN&Co., including UK disc jockey Laura Whitmore.

16 July 2013/NEW YORK – LILY HOAGLAND seemed happy with her choice. Sapphires no less.

Meanwhile, Marife Hernandez gave rubies a close inspection as Ann Nitze (is she holding a sapphire bracelet?) offered moral support.

There are few better ways to spend an afternoon than vetting jewel-of-the-crown type gems, with tea and Champagne as a backdrop. The scene on Tuesday was Siddharth Kaliwal's swanky Upper East Side Gem Palace.

Hosts were the Freer Sackler Galleries of The Smithsonian Institution, along with Tiffany Dubin, Ann Nitze, Susan Pillsbury and Sana Sabbagh.

Marife Hernandez and Ann+Nitze have some decisions to make.

Reception guests could use the occasion to find "something to wear" to the "Some Enchanted Evening Gala" on 17 Oct. The soiree is a fundraiser for the highly anticipated "Yoga: The Art of Transformation," which organizers are calling the world's first exhibit on the "visual culture" of yoga. The traveling exhibit will be installed at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery from 19 Oct. through 26 Jan 2014.
