PARIS — Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has refreshed its global cocktail program, launching a new line-up dubbed “Classics Perfected 2.0: The Decades.”
Created as a spin-off to the first Classics Perfected menu released in 2015, the revitalized menu pays homage to some of the most fascinating cocktails in history. The menu was designed by the brand’s Fairmont Tastemakers — an elite team of award-winning mixologists.
“Classics Perfected 2.0 goes beyond a traditional cocktail menu offering as it celebrates the heritage of Fairmont cocktail culture over two centuries. The collection captivates guests, not only with delicious flavours, but with fascinating stories and history, celebrating the influences of foreign cultures, the glamour of travel and the innovation of bartenders throughout the ages,” says Ralitza Iordanova, director, Global Lifestyle Partnerships, Accor.
The new collection celebrates 10 of the most iconic cocktails crafted throughout the decades of the 19th and 20th centuries. Among these creations are modern takes on the French 75, the Mai Tai and the Old Fashioned — all created with luxury and premium spirits and mixed with house-made syrups, juices and bitters.
