What does Brisk know how to do? They know how to have a good time!
I flew out to Miami to hang with some of the best bloggers in the country and to live the Brisk culture. Not only was I pleasantly surprised, Brisk made me a lifetime customer. We arrived in Miami and went straight to the hotel. We stayed at the ever to popular, Loews Hotel. They are slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite hotel chains. We left the freezing cold weather in Dallas and arrived in Sunny Miami where the temperatures didn’t drop below 70 degrees the whole time we were there. This is the view from my hotel room – not to bad, huh?
The oh-so-popular DJ Irie was our host for the weekend. He set up our itinerary to experience the hottest spots that Miami has to offer. Our first night in Miami, we had a private party at the Soho Beach House penthouse. While we were there, we got acquainted with other bloggers from across the country. Chicago Hustles Magazine, Bossip and Karen Civil were a few of the bloggers in attendance. The SOHO Beach House was so pretty and had great views of the beach and the city.
The next day we had an amazing party bus that took us around town all day. Not just any old party bus, but a party bus that had a pole, fog machine and all the Brisk you could ever want. We took a tour around the city and ended up at The Rusty Pelican for brunch with DJ Irie. The view was absolutely breath taking.
We drank bottomless mimosas and enjoyed each other’s company. I loved getting to know DJ Irie, he was such a down to Earth guy and super easy to converse with. If you’re trying to figure out where you know DJ Irie from, let me give you a little recap. DJ Irie is the official DJ of The Miami Heat and the “unofficial Mayor of Miami.” He is at the hottest parties, events and more throughout the whole country. If you haven’t checked him out, I would highly recommend it!
Did I mention that we had bottomless mimosas at The Rusty Pelican? This waterfront restaurant is known for their amazing views and delicious foods. You could waste your day away staring out at the view of Downtown Miami and all the beautiful people riding their boats on the water. After brunch, I took the few short hours of free time that I had in Miami to spend it at the beach.
After a quick dip in the ocean, we were on our way to the American Airline Arena to see Macklemore. His concert was amazing and I learned that he was a completely sober artist, which made me respect him so much more than I already did. The Macklemore concert was a great addition to our weekend because Brisk Bodega is all about culture and music. If I could sum up the Brisk brand in one word it would be FUN. The brand is genius and after getting to spend a weekend with the minds behind the brand, I know why it is such a success. This group of individuals get it, the know how to bring life to a brand, and how to share fun experiences with others through Brisk.
At the Macklemore concert, we had some of the best tasting cocktails that used Brisk as the mixer. These are the three amazing drinks that you must try at your next party.
There is a little something for everybody. My favorite drink was #TurntUpTea. The raspberry Brisk and Vodka paired perfectly together. After the concert and a few amazing Brisk drinks, we went the ever so popular night club, LIV Miami. If you want to party in Miami, this the place to go. We ventured to LIV on a Sunday night and the crowd was pretty good. Once it turned 1 am, the whole club became packed. The flood gates opened and people were rushing in from every direction.
We got to end the night partying with DJ Irie. He helped form our whole itinerary for a short weekend in Miami. He did an amazing job of showing up what Miami is all about from the food to the beach to the night life scene.

Unfortunately, all things come to an end. We ended our trip to Miami sipping a Brisk on the balcony while taking in one last view of the beautiful scenery before heading home.
After spending time in this nasty Texas weather, I’ve been dreaming about being back in Miami with the Brisk crew. Until then, I’ll sip Brisk in my office and day dream. What are your favorite Brisk drinks?
