6 Cocktails to Sip That Taste Just Like Vacation

Wouldn’t you love to visit south Florida’s beaches or explore the historic French Quarter in New Orleans right about now? That’s not happening for the foreseeable future due to travel restrictions from COVID-19 and rising cases around the country – but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy vacation vibes from home.

You can get a taste of top vacation destinations with just one sip of these delicious and refreshing cocktails from Loews Hotels & Co’s innovative Getaways in a Glass cocktail program.

The Getaways in Glass cocktails include: the Golden Dawn, offering a sun-kissed taste of Florida; NOLA Hurricane, a classic drink in New Orleans; Hollywood Hills, infused with ingredients representing the Los Angeles lifestyle; Whiskey Winter, perfect for keeping warm if you’re used to cold winters in Boston; Prickly Pear Margarita, a quintessential Tucson cocktail; and Aperol Fresca, a tropical sip of Miami.

“Our food and beverage is seamlessly and deeply intertwined in the destinations that we call home,” said Mark Weiss, senior vice president of food and beverage for Loews Hotels & Co. “In sharing our ‘Getaways in a Glass’ cocktails, we hope to give guests a chance to have a taste of the incredible cities that our hotels are located in, while still delivering that locally handcrafted hospitality that Loews is known for.”
