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.
