Even though our 12 day medical hiatus forced us to miss Closing Day of the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge at Blue Star Jets Field, we recently had the opportunity to enjoy the day's signature drink, the Xanté Ginger Martini. Xanté and Hamptons Magazine hosted the closing day celebration at Polo and the Ginger Martini's were a huge hit in the VIP tent - and we can taste why! Xanté is described as a “ménage a trois combining the sweetness of virgin pears with a touch of the finest French Cognac matured for four years in French Limousine Oak barreled with hints of vanilla.” Pairing it with ginger and lemon not only cuts some of the sweetness, but it's the perfect complement to the notes of pear. It definitely cracked our list of new favorite drinks and was introduced just in time to become the ‘it’ cocktail for Fall.
