When you start a new adventure, just like when we started with the Sumus Hotels brand project, there are a lot of details that you have to take in mind. We wanted to create a cocktail that defines us, something light and refreshing that will make you remind of the mediterranean summers, the relaxing afternoons in the swimming-pool, and at the same time, that our staff was able to participate in this project.
So, after some conversations we decided to create the #SumusCocktail contest, so all our bar staff in Monteplaya and Stella & Spa could participate in the creation process of our exclusive cocktail.
We must say that our people put forth good effort on it, and we have had very interesting proposals that we have been publishing in our Facebook. In order to be able to evaluate the proposals in a fair-minded way, a commitee of Sumus Hotels Group Direction, made a tasting of the different cocktails, scoring from 1 to 5 the taste, presentation and refreshment feeling of each cocktail.
It has been really difficult to choose only one cocktail, that's why finally, among the winner of the #SumusCocktail, we have given 3 additional prizes, corresponding to the highest score in each category. Here you have the finalists:
TEO: Most refreshing -> recipe
RAUL: Best presentation -> recipe
OSCAR: Best taste -> recipe
And the best cocktail by general agreement, and winner of the #SumusCocktail contest is...
¡Antonio, from Sumus Hotel Monteplaya!
Below we'll explain you how Antonio makes the Sumus Cocktail, so you can do it at home, close your eyes and be transported to your holidays with us :)

To decorate the glass, you can use grenadine or other colourful syrup and sugar. First soak the glass border in the syrup, an then pass it throught the sugar so set it.
