In celebration of its brand-new renovation, the outdoor Terrasse restaurant at Zurich’s renowned hotel Baur au Lac is introducing a special end-of-summer cocktail: the Swisstini.
Albeit most delightful while sipped outdoors at the Terrasse overlooking Lake Zurich, a Swisstini on a rooftop in New York or at a pool party in Los Angeles will do as well (just swap the cross for your favorite accent).
Combine 1 1/3 ounces vodka, 1/2 ounce crème de framboise, 3/4 ounce raspberry purée, 1/5 ounce lime juice and a dash of simple syrup. Shake and pour into chilled martini glasses. For the white cross, use two thin pieces of white chocolate. Hint: the layer of foam on top keeps the white chocolate afloat.
About the Baur au Lac
Fresh off a $41 million renovation, the 120-room Baur au Lac is a short walk from Zürich’s world-famous Bahnhofstrasse, the central Paradeplatz and the city’s bustling financial district. It is also home to newly renovated Pavillion and Terrasse restaurants, as well as Rive Gauche restaurant, a place to see and be seen in Zurich, and is steps from the sparkling waters and boat cruises of Lake Zurich. The Baur au Lac is one of the oldest members of The Leading Hotels of the World.
