Chilled Drink of the Week: St. Vanderpump
Wanna get pumped for the holidays? Restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump recently opened PUMP, a restaurant-bar-garden-lounge on Santa Monica Blvd. serving up a festive signature cocktail specially made for the spirited season.
When patrons enter PUMP they will be instantly transported to a European paradise, creating a unique and sensual dining experience.
“We planted six one hundred year-old olive trees and fifty other trees surrounding the property to immediately transform our dining garden,” says Vanderpump of her sexy garden. “We have a plethora of delicious cocktail options as you sit back and enjoy the sounds under the olive trees and feel pumped!”
For a beautiful champagne cocktail to celebrate with this holiday season, give this crisp floral bubbly drink a mix.
