When Christmas magic invades Paris, it’s hard to resist it. Speaking of which, Christmas spirit may take over your after-work drinks. And for this, we invite you to go to Mon Coco, near République in Paris.
How come? Because this super trendy place unveils a new Christmas cocktail list and they are great! Created by Matthias Giroud, these creations that taste like Christmas, invite you to discover the Christmas spirit across the world. All in all, 9 cocktails are available (including 3 that are alcohol(-free). Each of these cocktails represent a country: and there’s nothing quite like it to mix Christmas magic and travel!
As for us, we went for the very tasty Choco coco that takes us straight to Peru, on the land of the Incas! As its name suggests it, it’s a cocktail based on chocolate! And to be very precise, it’s based on dark Valrhona chocolate, milk, gingerbread and chestnut jam. Served in an ugly-Christmas-sweater-inspired mug, it can be enjoyed with gingerbread soldiers… And we feel like on Christmas morning!
Another alcohol-free cocktail delighted us, the Sorrel Soft Punch. This time, we go to Jamaica with this spicy, sour and fizzy creation. we have artisanal pear shrub, nutmeg, ginger, lime and hibiscus syrup: a true ray of sun but cocktail style. It’s served in a cup shaped like Santa Claus and if you turn it upside down, it’s shaped like a snowman!
Our ultimate and third temptation, this time with alcohol, the Be Healthy. This time, the inspiration comes straight from England: gin, cordial paragon rue berry, lime and cider, the whole topped with candy floss. Very sweet and balanced, we enjoy it with our pink finger up!
So, which one will you have?
