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.

How to Plan the Perfect Luxury Spa Experience

We all hear talk about self-care, but why is self-care so important? Self-care means being mindful of our own needs, taking the time to do things that help us feel well and live well.

Self-care impacts both our physical and mental health as it can help to eliminate or reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also minimise frustration and anger, increase happiness, improve energy and concentration, better our mood and much more.

In other words, self-care is important because when we take care of ourselves and are not stressed then naturally, we are better able to meet the needs of others. Life is a healing journey and it starts with self-care and self-awareness of one's needs.
