Finolhu Baa Atoll to Rejoice Platinum Jubilee Weekend with New Royal Cocktails
Finolhu Baa Atoll Maldives is introducing two new royal cocktails for guests staying at the resort over the Platinum Jubilee Weekend on 2 – 5 June 2022.
The cocktails have been tailored to the palette and likes of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and can be enjoyed on the resort’s impressive sandbank or poolside in a private overwater villa.
The “Zaza” Dubonnet
A classic cocktail of the 1930’s, the Dubonnet cocktail is said to be Her Majesty’s favourite pre-dinner tipple and was also a favourite of the late Queen Mother. The glamorous French cocktail is traditionally served straight up and without garnish, but the royals are said to enjoy the drink best when it’s served over ice and with a twist of lemon.
Ingredients: Dubonnet, dry London gin, splash of lemon bitters.
Method: Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and stir until chilled, pour and garnish with a lemon swath.
Thyme-less & Down to Earth
Combining Her Majesty’s love of whiskey, chocolate and Prince Phillip’s mushrooms a la crème, this unique cocktail celebrates earthy flavours from both land and sea.
Ingredients: mushroom-infused blended Scotch, thyme, orange and dark chocolate bitters, seaweed mist and dark cacao.
Method: In a copper mug, combine thyme leaf, bitters and seaweed saline solutions and lightly muddle. Add crushed iced, pour over the whisky and gently mix. Top up with crushed ice and serve with a cocoa powdered orange peel.
For an enhanced experience, guests staying in the resort’s two-bedroom villas will benefit from the ‘Roohu’, a personalised guest service ensuring all needs are taken care of by a dedicated host - including unpacking, dining reservations, spa bookings and a tailor-made itinerary for the duration of the stay.
