Two years into this pandemic and we are all longing for our well-deserved holiday—whether it's on the beaches of Bali, ski slopes in Austria, or vineyards across France. Wanderlust has inspired us to ask our next set of bartenders to create tipples based on the destinations they plan to visit once travel restrictions are lifted. Not surprisingly, they rose to the challenge and served up inspired tipples that took our palates on a journey to Italy, French Guiana and Spain.
Watch the bartenders concoct these drinks and try making them at home with the recipes below:
