From the inbox: Nachtmann Norman Libation Cocktail from the Langham Hotel

Who doesn't love relaxing on a summer day with a refreshing cocktail? Travelle at the Langham Hotel has a new craft cocktail that will have you chilllin' on a tropical island with one sip. Here's more on the drink and the recipe:




Crafted by Bartender Vlachelav Borlov exclusively for Travelle, known for its table-side custom cocktail service, the Nachtmann Norman Libation balances fruity, floral flavors of lemon, apple, and sweet elderflower with the brandy’s spicy notes, and will be served in Nachtmann’s Sculpture Tumbler. Borlov’s inspiration for the cocktail’s flavors came from the bright fruits and flowers of summer and the regal and icy appeal of the cut-crystal Nachtmann Sculpture rocks glass, which called for elegant liquors.” Exclusively offered at Travelle at The Langham Chicago beginning Thursday, August 14th, the Nachtmann Norman Libation is the perfect way to help take the edge off the August heat and embrace the tastes of summer before season’s end. ($16; or $30 for cocktail and Nachtmann Sculpture Tumbler).
