To celebrate its four finalists of the 2013 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize, the luxury hotel chain has created four celebratory cocktails available at select Dorchester hotels including: The Dorchester, London; Hotel Principe di Savoia, Milan; Le Meurice, Paris; Le Richemond, Geneva and The Beverly Hills Hotel, Los Angeles. The special cocktails are available only through fashion season, beginning with New York's Fashion Week on September 5 and ending with Paris Fashion Week on October 2. The Casasola Martini was inspired by designer Barbara Casasola's favorite drink — the diry martini. Conceived by Daniele Confalonieri of Hotel Principe di Savoia, the drink is vodka infused with raspberry, Chambord, pineapple juice, raspberry purée and a splash of Champagne.
The tasty Berry Lace was inspired by designer Huishan Zhang and conceived by William Oliveri of Le Meurice. The drink consists of Champagne Rosé, strawberries, raspberries, brown sugar, lime juice and fresh mint leaves. Thirsty yet? Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman, the design duo behind Fyodor Golan created the Marilyn with Robert Rouleau of Bar Nineteen 12 at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Named after the designer's love of Marilyn Monroe, the cocktail is a swirl of Champagne, peach purée, fraise syrup and a lemon peel for color. With so many options it’ll be hard to choose (but we’re sure you can manage), here’s to sipping in style!
