Earlier this week, Disaronno liqueur fêted the accomplishments of several inspirational females at the annual Power Women Gala in New York City. Recipients in attendance included: Betsy Brandt of Breaking Bad, Saffron Burrows of In the Name of the Father, Emmy Award winning TV Host and Restauranteur Lidia Bastianich, CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, MSNBC’s Krystal Ball, Scientist Jill Bolte Taylor, and Fusion Network Host Alicia Menendez.


Guests and honorees enjoyed the intimate award ceremony over a seated dinner hosted by Arianna Huffington. Arianna was joined by power man and co-host Matt LeBlanc, who had his step-daughter as his date for the evening and spoke of how inspired he was to be in the room with these women who had such amazing accomplishments. He noted how pleased he was to have his 20-year old daughter there and hoped she too would find strength and inspiration from these stories for her own life.

After the ceremony, guests made their way to the Disaronno after-party, which was blue-grassed themed. Disaronno’s Brand Ambassador Paul Sevigny was on-site mixing up variations of the signature Disaronno Sour, incorporating fresh jams and marmalades in flavors such as cherry, strawberry, fig, apricot, and raspberry with herbs such as rosemary, mint and basil. Guests had the opportunity to mix and match their own customized Disaronno Sour, which received rave reviews from the crowd.
