Air France is now offering its customers travelling in the Business cabin the opportunity to indulge in a new cocktail, created in association with the Hotel Lancaster in Paris. Specially created by the head bartender of the legendary 5-star Parisian hotel, this exclusive creation is offered as an aperitif on all flights on the company’s long-haul network.

Chic, bold and bubbly

A real designer drink, the cocktail will be renewed twice a year, to the rhythm of the spring-summer and autumn-winter seasons, with two essential components: top-of-the-range French ingredients and a Champagne topping.

For this first spring/summer 2019 edition, the head bartender at the Hotel Lancaster in Paris was inspired by her childhood memories in the South of France. This new cocktail sparkles with notes of cherry and lime with Marie Brizard rosemary liqueur, complemented by white peach juice. It boldly combines dark Saint-James rum with its warm aroma and a touch of Champagne, Air France’s signature in all travel cabins.

A joint vision of a certain way of life

Together with the Hotel Lancaster in Paris, a 5-star palace just a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées, Air France shares a certain idea of the art of French-style travel.  An initial collaboration has already resulted from this joint vision. Since July 2018, the company has been offering its customers*, in its new Business lounge located in Hall L of Terminal 2E at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, a selection of cocktails specially designed by the head bartender at the Hotel Lancaster in Paris: “Un air de Paris”, a Signature cocktail specially created for Air France, a “Destination” cocktail of the month and a special mocktail.
