Belmond La Residencia Gives a Masterclass in Entertaining

Placeholder image

Belmond La Residencia, located in the charming artists’ village of Deià in the heart of Mallorca’s Tramuntana mountains, is launching a new ‘Host with the Most’ class – an interactive, hands-on session for those with a passion for entertaining, designed to give ideas on impressive cocktails and canapés.

The one hour-long course (€85 + VAT per person) teaches guests of all skill levels how to use simple ingredients to prepare original and refreshing cocktails to create a ‘wow’ factor, such as a Mediterranean gin and tonic, which uses a blue tonic water mixed with Xoriguer, a local gin from the neighbouring island of Menorca, to produce the ultimate version of the classic drink but with a Spanish twist.

Inspired by nature, the masterclass takes creations from garden to glass; using hand-picked lemons from the trees in the orchard and fresh herbs from the kitchen garden, ready to be shaken and stirred with their favourite liqueurs. Whilst mixing the cocktails, the Chef prepares tapas dishes that use local, seasonal produce in easy to follow steps. Guests will be given seeds to grow herbs as a reminder of sunny Mallorca as well as a special cocktail shaker to take home, keeping the spirit of creative cocktail-making and cooking alive long after the holiday has drawn to a close.

Visitors to the hotel’s award-winning La Residencia Spa, set on the hillside overlooking the surrounding olive and citrus groves, will not miss out with the introduction of ‘cocktail hour’. Guests relaxing after a restorative treatment are invited to sip a cold and refreshing apéritif while absorbing the view from the private open-air terraces of the spa.

Belmond La Residencia is a charming village of restaurants, guest rooms, gardens and galleries, located in the hills of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can escape from the hectic pace of everyday life as they take time to relax, learn and develop new skills by taking part in painting and sculpture master classes, olive-tasting, and more.
