Summer Sake and Ice Cream Tasting

(New York, NY) July 3, 2012 – Asian Women In Business (AWIB) is holding a Sake and Ice Cream Tasting on a manicured rooftop with a fabulous view of the Hudson River and the Big Apple.  The event will be on Tuesday, July 10th from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM at the offices of Ogilvy & Mather, 636 11thAvenue, NYC.

Featured are two Asian American artisanal ice cream makers:

  • Adirondack Creamery  - with its locally produced ice cream to minimize its carbon footprint.  All natural and made from hormone free milk and cream, it is both rich and flavorful. 
  • Chinatown Ice Cream Factory - where ice cream making is in their genes. Established over 30 years ago, CICF is known for making America’s most popular dessert with an exotic Chinese twist.

Two sake sommeliers will guide our palate as they discuss the pairing of sake with ice cream and introduce almost a dozen sake brands. 

Not only will we satisfy your sweet tooth, we will indulge your appetite as well with a variety of savory Japanese bites.  If that’s not enough, we will be raffling away prizes such as hotel stays, dinners at fabulous NYC restaurants, Kyoto vacation packages, and much more! You don’t want to miss the sweetest event of the summer.

A special thanks to our sponsor Shiseido, who will be on hand to perfect your pout with lip touch-ups in your favorite shades.

The cost is $20 for AWIB members and $60 for non-members. Registration with payment must be received prior to the event. For more information or to RSVP, please visit, email or call (212) 868-1368.
