This is where we’ll be spending every free minute in the run-up to Christmas.
The River Club at the River Lee Hotel just unveiled its new Winter Terrace; a magical winter wonderland designed with festive brunches and decadent cocktails in mind.
If you can’t stand the wait, we’ve got you; Yay Cork crept in for a sneak peek, just as Santa’s elves were putting the finishing touches to our ideal Christmas venue.
Dreamed up in partnership with the genius team behind the stunning window displays of Brown Thomas, Cork, the ‘Alpine Lodge’ themed Winter Terrace is fully decked out like a cosy ski chalet.
And there’s a brand new cocktail selection to match – warm up with a Log Fire made with Roe & Co. Blended Irish Whiskey, dry fruit syrup and walnut bitters or opt for an Alpine Sour with Bulleit Rye, Amaro, fresh orange juice and clove tincture.
For full festive frivolity order a Partridge in a Pear Tree, a clever twist on an Appletini made with Ketel One Vodka, fresh lime juice, spiced pear syrup and apple and rosemary tincture.
Warm throws are available for cuddling up under as you sip something fabulous from the outrageously good menu.
It’s the ideal spot to meet friends for light bites after Christmas shopping or to catch up with old friends over coffees – all to a seasonal soundtrack to match the mood.
