The Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club has fashioned a special Bejeweled Martini, a captivating new cocktail that swaps the traditional olive for a sparkling gemstone.
Kenya is a recognized hotspot for collectors holding an affinity for precious stones and no visit is complete without a visit to the top shops and hotels to browse the merchandise. Guaranteed to set the scene for any honeymoon, anniversary or long-awaited safari journey the Bejeweled Martini can be paired with an array of precious jewels including the locally sourced Tsavorite mined near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzanite, Garnet, Pink and Blue Topaz and comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
At the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto, an urban beekeeping initiative not only nurtures the spread of pollinating bees to the neighboring Toronto Islands, Don Valley watershed and city parks, but has also inspired a special hotel libation. The Festive Buzz combines white peach puree, the hotel’s local honey and Moet Chandon champane for a distinctively enjoyable drink fit for any toast (see recipe below).
· 1OZ WHITE PEACH PUREE
· 1/4 OZ Royal York HONEY
· 4OZ MOET CHANDON
· SERVED IN A FLUTE GARNISHED WITH SUGAR POWDERED MINT LEAF
