Beverage Trends: Renaissance Montreal’s Cocktail Revelations


If you’re going to open a new property, why not go all-in? Delivering much more than lip service to great cocktails is important for many brands and properties.

As Renaissance Montreal prepares for its stylish debut in January 2016, master mixologist Lawrence Piccard is going the extra distance toward the goal of providing the best cocktail experience in the city. The hotel’s mixology program will be an integral component of its reinvention of the hospitality experience, as seen in their artful “Revelations” video (above).

Here’s the recipe for one of Piccard’s favorites:

East Signature Cocktail


· 1 ½ oz. Hennessy V.S.

· 1 ½ oz. Sake

· 1 oz. Lime juice

· 1oz. Lemongrass syrup

· 1oz. Pomegranate juice

· ½ oz. Egg white


Combine all ingredients and shake vigorously. Then, filter the drink with a cocktail strainer into an Old Fashioned glass already filled with ice.
