From the Agua de Sevilla to the Manhattan, here’s a look at eight cocktails named for eight exhilarating destinations.
The mere mention of a city can conjure up memories, nostalgia, and that pining urge to travel. We can visit Los Angeles and New York through the lens of film, or crack open a book to transport us to the likes of Paris, London, and other incredible cities.
It’s no secret that the palate plays a significant role in travel, and some of the world’s most exhilarating cities have been immortalized via one of the most delightful palate-pleasing crafts: cocktails! Just as emblematic to beverage culture as wine, the transportive power of tipples should never be underestimated. Whether it’s partaking in pre-dinner aperitif culture or sipping a lunchtime libation, a mixed drink never fails to help immerse one in a destination. Plus, like popular local foods, cocktails are more or less easy to replicate at home when waxing nostalgic for a beloved destination or gearing up for your next trip. Why not enhance your armchair travels by sipping a Parisian Martini while watching Paris je t’aime or a London Fog while humming along to the “loverly” tunes of My Fair Lady?
Whether you’re looking to conjure up the easy breezy vibes of Seville or emulate the singular sophistication of Manhattan, here’s a look at eight cocktails named for eight exciting destinations that you can mix and enjoy at home.
