Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has an exciting new global cocktail menu, Classics Perfected 2.0 “The Decades.” This new menu features inspired spins on classic cocktails over the decades, to convey the influence of cocktail culture over the past two centuries.
Old has become new again as the six award-winning Tastemaker mixologist team converged this year in NY at the Dead Rabbit and used iconic cocktail recipes for inspiration for the new program cocktails. Layla Linn our Liquid Kitchen beverage director joined the Fairmont team to get all the creative mixing scribed into recipes. We are excited to see this new menu roll out across Fairmont Hotels globally.
This year, the Tastemakers team expanded to include beverage experts from six award-winning Fairmont properties, including The Savoy (a Fairmont Managed Hotel in London), Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal, Fairmont Austin, Fairmont Singapore and the soon-to-open Fairmont Rio de Janeiro Copacabana.
I know and have visited many of these talented Tastemaker’s bars. But recently work travels took me to the cities where I was able to meet Jo Last at The Savoy in London and Bannie Kang at Anti:dote in Singapore. It was great to chat with these wonderful and talented ladies about the industry, their passion for bartending and best of all sipping their delicious cocktails. If your travels take you to any of the Tastemaker’s bars I hope you enjoy the new #Cocktails as much as I have, and tell them the Liquid Kitchen sent you 🙂
