Inspired by the legendary French singer and cultural Icon, Edith Piaf, from which Piaf Restaurant gets its name, the new French Cocktail Menu at Grand Velas Riviera Maya has 12 drinks using traditional top-shelf French liqueurs. Created by mixologists to complement the premiere menu by new chef, Karl Gulotta, the menu features creative drinks with traditional French ingredients ranging from Yellow Chartreuse, Grand Marnier, and Chambord to Ricard liqueur. At no additional cost, diners at the AAA Four Diamond Piaf can enjoy a French cocktail and savor such gourmet specialties as ballotine of scallops with black truffle and creamy tarragon polenta and cider cloud, terrine of foie gras with grapes glazed in Sauternes and apricot-fig chutney, lamb chop cooked in dark beer and piquillo peppers, duck magret with snails Bourgogne style.
The French Cocktail Menu offers you a variety of flavors and ingredients. Guests seeking a milder, sweeter drink can enjoy Le Courchevel, with Yellow Chartreuse, orange juice, banana, and lemon juice or the Rose D'une Nuit, with vodka, rose essence, and cranberry juice. The Violet Kir Royal has a natural essence with violet nectar, vodka, cranberry juice, and sparkling wine and for a dessert drink, Baiser de la Lune is a tasteful creation with cognac, coconut ice cream, and Kahlua. The French Cocktail Menu is exclusively available at Piaf, the resort’s fine dining French restaurant and a recipient of a AAA Four Diamond award.
