On October 21 and October 22, Licorería Limantour’s crew of award-winning mixologists led by inventive maverick José Luis León Martinez will take over the resort’s dramatic Whale Bar that overlooks a personal coral reef within the Indian Ocean. St. Regis friends can be introduced with a stunning array of handcrafted elixirs, every a murals in its personal proper and meticulously ready to tantalize the style buds. With tropical elements sourced from small producers in Oaxaca, the sensorial expertise includes eight libations the place every cocktail turns into a canvas, and each sip tells a narrative.
The Mangostan is a charming fusion of flavors and textures achieved with an modern milk washing method that clarifies and refines a mix of vodka, sake, rosé wine and mangosteen, a Mexican fruit identified for its candy and tangy taste profile. The Hibiscus combines smoky mezcal, floral hibiscus and zesty lime to seize the harmonious flavors of Mexico. The Margarita Al Pastor, the cocktail that helped set up Limantour as a world-class establishment, attracts inspiration from Mexico’s ubiquitous taco al pastor dish with pineapple, chili and cilantro.
“With awe-inspiring sunsets, expertly curated cocktails and small bites to match, the brand new Licorería Limantour pop-up at Whale Bar will mix the wild components of Oaxaca with the pure fantastic thing about Dhaalu Atoll for a sensational expertise to not be missed,” says Vincent Pauchon, Normal Supervisor of The St. Regis Maldives.
The 2-night takeover may also supply St. Regis friends behind-the-scenes entry to Limantour’s mixology secrets and techniques with interactive demonstrations and insights from José Luis León Martinez, an Worldwide Bartender of the Yr nominee and recipient of the world’s greatest margarita award by Patrón Tequila. In the course of the unique classes held at Whale Bar, friends will uncover the artistry and strategies which have made Limantour a world sensation.

This October’s two-night residency marks the primary time the institution has introduced its sought-after cocktail expertise to the Indian Ocean.
