Spring has sprung early!


I had predicted it last month : « … don’t wait … it looks as though the spring skiing season will be shorter than usual. » However what a surprise to see Spring 2010 off to such an early and roaring start!

As I write these lines, the radiant sunshine has, alas, melted away the skating rink and the Beaulieu trail. Your favorite bartender, Yves, passionate golfer beyond belief, has already stored his snowboard for the season and pulled out his golf bag. It is only a matter of days before his first swing…

Whisky Bar Recipe

 Yves, your favorite bartender suggests this easy recipe with a fun twist to it (plus you get to use the bottle of blue Curaçao that has been sitting in your liquor cabinet since last Father’s Day…)


2oz of Blue Curaçao

½ oz of Gin
½ oz of white Rhum
Ice cubes
A dash of Sprite
Zest from one lemon

In a shaker glass, add the first 5 ingredients. Mix well and pass through a sieve into a Martini type of cocktail glass. Add the dash of Sprite to make it effervescent.

New: Shirodhara Massage

Shirodhara is a typical massage of the Ayurvedic tradition. The treatment consists of pouring a steady stream of hot aromatic sesame oil on the forehead, particularly on the third eye area known as the center of the nervous system.

This massage relieves stress, reduces anguish and normalizes sleep. Sesame oil is known for its anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties.

A well appreciated treatment during these times when stress ages us much too quickly!

I look forward to pampering you.
