World’s best mixologists to show off their art
The world’s finest mixologists will gather at the magnificent Élysée Montmartre this weekend for the Paris Cocktail Festival.
While Sunday (November 17) is reserved strictly for industry professionals and journalists, Saturday (November 16) is open to the public and promises to be a day to remember.
The festival, which is in its eighth year, is a chance for cocktail lovers to enjoy tastings, masterclasses, demonstrations and, probably, more tastings
With names such as Chambord, Monin and La Mordue in the hands of some of the world’s most talented cocktail makers, it is no surprise that more than 3,000 people are expected to attend.
There will even be the chance to check out something totally new at the hot cocktails workshop, at which Monin promises “a moment of comfort” with their Peanut Cookie Time cocktail, which “combines the sweet and salty flavour of peanuts with the gluttony of the cookie”.
