Riviera 31, the cocktail lounge at Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, recently had a swank makeover, to offer what’s described as a “sensual baroque take on flowers and their mystery and elegance.” Now guests can sink into deep ruby red and blue velvet sofas under the gold Rococo ceiling and flattering hushed lighting. To complement the redesign, a new cocktail menu has been ushered it, featuring drinks that play off their surroundings. Among them, this striking take on the martini.

INGREDIENTS:
—1 oz. truffl e fat washed Havana Club Rum
—1 oz. Gosling Spiced Rum
—1 oz. fresh grapefruit juice

Signature Drink: Bourbon Sangria

Riesling, meet bourbon. This refreshing pairing found in the Royal Park Bourbon Sangria is served at the PARK 600 bar + kitchen at Rochester’s Royal Park Hotel. Bartender and server Megan Seeley concocted this citrusy sweet drink while planning the summer menu. “We typically go through 24-30 gallons a week,” says Richard Ragainis, the hotel’s food and beverage director. With such positive buzz from customers, it’s apropos that the drink is made in a sizable jar shaped like a beehive.
