When Kanye West, Guns N’ Roses, and Kings of Leon signed on to perform at the three-day, island music party Governors Ball, snagging a general-admission ticket got as hard as grabbing a seat on the 6 train at rush hour. So for all you folks who can’t get the last-remaining tickets or don’t want to pay the lowest-priced $95 stub, there are certain…alternatives. And by alternatives, I do mean very special cocktails made with Governors Ball’s official spirit – SKYY Vodka – that you can get at two bars in NYC all weekend long: Cowgirl Seahorse and Rockbar.
Cowgirl Seahorse – the nautical spot right by South Street Seaport with mounted fish heads and antler chandeliers – and Rockbar – the grungy West Village gay bar – are doling out these three SKYY cocktails for just this weekend:
Moscato Envy: SKYY Infusions Moscato Grape, tonic, and lime
SKYY Palmer: SKYY Vodka, lemonade, and iced tea
Wild Strawberry Lemonade: SKYY Infusions Wild Strawberry, lemonade, wheels of lemon, and strawberries
Ask the bartender to blast Kanye’s "Stronger," and you’ll feel like you’re on Randall’s Island – but without the ticket price, face-painted crowds, and nonstop Instagramming.
