The Sun Beam Cocktail

MIXOLOGY RECIPE

The Sun Beam

CHAMOMILE SOUR

Named after the German town of Seiffen, The Sun Beam tea cocktail is Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas’ creation, blending TEALEAVES Organic Chamomile Blossoms + Pantone 116C + Mood: Calm.

THE TEA MOOD
CALM

Organic Chamomile Blossoms’ tranquil qualities help the body unwind.

THE MUSE
BEES

Carefree days filled with calm and comfort evoke the nostalgia of lying in a field, the gentle hum of bees happily drifting by with golden treasures.

THE COLOR
PANTONE 116 C

“Sparkling with optimism, this warm and engaging yellow provides hope and comfort.”

LAURIE PRESSMAN
Vice President | Pantone Color Institute™

Notes from Michael LaPenna, Mixologist at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas:


“I wanted let the chamomile shine. I didn’t want to mask the delicate blend with dominant flavors. So I infused the cachaça with chamomile for ten days, allowing the taste to come out. Pairing the infusion with sage honey tied it all together.”
