Naughty & Nice Heats Up
This year, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants incorporated a brandwide
Summer Playground campaign full of fun
freebies from Memorial Day Weekend to
Labor Day. For guests at Hotel Monaco
in Seattle, a few hours spent in the
property’s Sazerac Bar meant contact with
its “naughty” and “nice” cocktails. A part
of the Summer Playground promotion at
this hotel, the naughty and nice cocktails
allowed guests to choose a drink based
on whether they were feeling particularly
angelic or pointedly mischievous.
The drinks were created by mixologist
Jacques Bezuidenhout and seemed to hold
“We get all types of people coming in,”
says Jeshua Madden, lead bartender at
Sazerac Bar. “It seems that everyone can
find themselves aligned with either being
the type that’s slightly naughty or the type
that’s slightly nice when out for a night.
So these cocktails were a big hit, especially
during happy hour.”
The two drinks offered were the Honey
Kiss: Leblon Cachaça, strawberries and
fresh lime; and the Temptation: Grey
Goose La Poire, apple juice and ginger
beer. Both drinks were available for $8.
“For fall, we will do something new but
similar,” Madden says.
