Four Seasons Launches New Line of Blooming Cocktails for Cocktail Quarterly Series
Published on : Tuesday, April 19, 2016
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts launches garden cocktails as the latest iteration of the ongoing Cocktail Quarterly series. From April to June 2016, participating Four Seasons properties will offer lush and locally crafted cocktails, incorporating fresh and seasonal ingredients and garnishes from the garden.
A year-long global initiative, the Cocktail Quarterly series hones in on one cocktail trend, technique or seasonal ingredient each quarter. Started in the summer of 2015, the cocktail series now adds garden-to-glass cocktails to the list of classic libations revamped throughout the initiative, including tea and coffee cocktails, bubbly beverages, and all-new twists on the classic Old Fashioned.
Cocktails include unique offerings such as:
- G&P (Grapes & Pisco) at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong: This twist on a gin and tonic uses pisco in place of gin, as well as the unexpected addition of fresh grapes, while elderflower liqueur adds delicate floral aromatics. A white orchid flower and lime wheel garnish the drink for a seasonal finishing touch.
- Morning Dew at Four Seasons Hotel Moscow: An ode to a fresh spring morning, this stunningly bright red cocktail is also inspired by punchy tiki flavours, and is made with fresh strawberries, passionfruit, white rum and lychee puree, topped with violet pineapple foam.
- Blossom at Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai: Evoking the vibrant colours and fragrance of blooming flowers, this cocktail relies on tuberose-infused Tanqueray to highlight the botanicals in the drink, while the addition of orange juice lends it acidity and its bright orange hue; pineapple syrup serves as the nectar for a sweet finish.
- The Fighting 69th at Regent Singapore (A Four Seasons Hotel): A tip of the hat to the namesake of the Hotel’s Manhattan Bar, this cocktail is named after New York City’s legendary 69th Infantry Regiment (also known as the “Fighting Irish”) during World War I. A classic gin and tonic is given a refreshing floral twist, using chamomile-infused St-Germain elderflower liqueur.
