Bombay Sapphire’s LUCKYRICE Festival Returning To Miami At The Raleigh

Festival Founder Danielle Chang with Iron Chef Morimoto


Last year Miami experienced its first LUCKYRICE Festival at the Soho Beach House. With a name like LUCKYRICE Festival, people weren’t sure what to expect, and were completely blown away by the elegant tented event that took place on the beach and hotel grounds. There were endless stations worthy of the best Wine & Food Festival events with an array of Asian dishes prepared by serious chefs, craft cocktails, entertainment and swinging paper lanterns.

Now we’re are welcoming the 2nd Annual LUCKYRICE Festival presented by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE East, which will be held at The Raleigh and hosted by Iron Chef, Masaharu Morimoto and Michael Schwartz.  This year Asian-meets-Latin will be the directive for the festival’s bites, and 8 celebrated mixologists will be creating 16 different cocktails with Bombay Sapphire East. 16!

“We are thrilled to have BOMBAY SAPPHIRE East Gin return for a second year in a row as the official spirit of the LUCKYRICE Festival in Miami”, says Ned Duggan, Brand Director, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Gin. “Paying homage to the subtle, yet exotic flavors of Asia infused with Thai Lemongrass and Vietnamese Black Peppercorns, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE East pairs perfectly with each imaginative Asian dish throughout the LUCKYRICE Festival.”

Confirmed participants include Restaurant Michael Schwartz, Khong River House, Juvia, The Setai Grill, Hakkasan, and Katsuya. Tickets go on sale October 16, although AMEX VIP presale has begun – don’t miss out!
