OUR 3 FAVOURITE COCKTAILS FOR A STYLISH SUMMER AT THE MONTENOTTE HOTEL

As the weather heats up, we tend to long for delicious, light and refreshing cocktails to cool us down and enjoy with friends on a summers evening and which will add a touch of glamour to your get-together

Our amazing beverage team led by the Bar Manager Gaëtan, created some amazing signature cocktails  in advance of reopening to add to our new stylish cocktail menu for the guests to enjoy this summer.

Inspired by our amazing views, and relaxed feeling while watching sunsets from the Terrace is our first signature cocktail - ‘Montenotte Sunrise’. A mix of Bacardi, Aperol, grapefruit, and lemon juice, with a dash of passion fruit puree will award you that delightful holiday feeling.

If you are looking for a glamorous way to celebrate a special occasion, our second signature cocktail - ‘Midnight Sparkle’ is sure to add a touch of elegance to any party. A mix of vodka, blueberry juice, orange liquor and lemon juice, topped with your favourite Prosecco creates a light, delicate stylish summer cocktail.

Leaving the best for last, ‘Berry Garden’, our third signature cocktail was created using our own botanical Montenotte Gin, specifically distilled by the Blackwater Distillery. It is a refreshing blend of botanical gin, berry fruit, lime juice with a dash of Lavender & Rosemary tonic water – a delicious summer cocktail everyone will love.
