Leaves are turning, temperatures are dropping and sports bars are overflowing, which can only mean one thing…FALL FOOTBALL SEASON is officially upon us!
While beer may be the traditional game day beverage of choice, the head mixologist at Vitascope Hall in the Hyatt Regency New Orleans feels differently, and she has created an over-the-top cocktail inspired by her beloved hometown team, the New Orleans Saints.
Aptly named Black & Gold, this lavish, limited-run libation blends the smoothness of Absolut 100 vodka and the subtle floral notes of Champagne Charles Mignon “Cuvée Billionaires Row” Brut Rosé Grand Cru with a splash of raspberry Chambord liqueur and chilled pineapple juice for a truly indulgent concoction that’s sure to excite Saints fans and traveling hotel guests alike. Topped with shaved edible gold and served up with a black and gold sugar rim, the Black & Gold cocktail is priced at $100. Full recipe and image below.
Available exclusively at Vitascope Hall during football season, the Black & Gold cocktail is a delicious, spirited way to cheer on New Orleans’ hometown heroes in style. Situated in the heart of downtown New Orleans, adjacent to Mercedes-Benz Superdome and just blocks from the historic French Quarter, Hyatt Regency New Orleans is a preferred destination for leisure and business travelers alike, boasting 1,193 strikingly sophisticated guest rooms, including 95 suites and four presidential suites. www.neworleans.hyatt.com
