Our team is always looking for a fun twist on the honored tradition of “something blue.”

Cinco de Mayo may celebrate the Mexican victory over France in 1862, but at The Breakers, we feel it’s important to drink to both sides of the Battle of Puebla on this fifth day of May. But we won’t just raise any glass–we’ll raise a Cointreaurita!

Created by The Breakers’ Master Sommelier Juan Gomez – originally from Mexico City – and Richard Lambert of Rémy Cointreau – originally from Angers, France – the Cointreaurita is the perfect blend of Mexican independence with a French influence. The eclectic drink also makes a delicious specialty sip for your cocktail hour.

If you’re feeling adventurous, mix up a Cointreaurita at home…

How to:

  • 3 oz of Patrón silver tequila
  • 1 oz sweet and sour mix
  • 1/2 oz fresh squeezed yuzu
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • Serve with Cointreau spheres and salty foam

In the land of the legendary cocktail party, the ritual of the New Year’s Eve bash is the most highly anticipated of the year… and no beverage pairs better with your celebration than a perfectly bubbly glass of Champagne.

Best Champagne for New Year's Eve

Debating the best Champagne to serve your guests as you ring in 2017? Don’t fret; we asked The Breakers’ Master Sommelier Virginia Philip to share her three favorite sips…

Moët & Chandon “Grand Vintage” Brut Champagne, Épernay, France, 2006

A blend of 43% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 19% Pinot Meunier, this bubbly has notes of lemon, toasted brioche and yellow apple. Hints of yellow flower and chamomile add to the succulent, creamy and rich profile.

Mumm “Cuvée R. Lalou” Champagne, Reims, France, 2002

This Prestige Cuvée was made as a tribute to René Lalou, master winemaker and chairman of G. H. Mumm for more than half a century. This elegant Champagne is made from an equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in some of the most legendary Grand Cru Vineyards of the region. Full bodied flavors of nougat, orange blossom and honey are followed by a crisp, clean finish.

And if you’re looking to splurge for that special someone…

Krug “Grande Cuvée,” Reims, France, M/V

Johann-Joseph Krug established his own Champagne house in 1843. This Multi Vintage Cuvée de Prestige is a blend of approximately 35% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. It displays notes of almond, ripe pear, biscuit, and baked apple with an elegant and long finish.

Cheers to a wonderful 2017!
