Sugar Plum Fairy Cocktail

Fun, festive and celebratory, the Sugar Plum Fairy dances amongst sparkling champagne and pomegranate juice.

Champagne creates a light stage for the Sugar Plum Fairy’s notes of vanilla and strawberry to pirouette upon against a backdrop of festive and seasonal pomegranate.

Created at St. Regis San Francisco by Mixologists Scott Berg and Eric Lauer.

Notes from Scott Berg, Mixologist at the St. Regis San Francisco:

“We created a simple syrup using the Sugar Plum Fairy tea, and let it steep for 15 hours to enhance the flavors. The longer it infuses, the deeper the flavor, but if you wait too long, the tea can become bitter.”


“It’s imperative to let it sit for just the right amount of time.”
