Fleur de Lis Cocktail

This floral take on a gin gimlet from Napa Valley's Auberge du Soleil makes an elegant start to any evening.

In the heart of agriculturally rich Napa Valley is a singular destination, Auberge du Soleil. Long renowned for its distinctive style—one that captures the joie de vivre of the South of France while seamlessly folding in the local carefree California vibe—the resort has recently undergone a notable renovation to its Michelin-star restaurant and its casual companion, The Bar.

The resort’s robust bar program will entice even the most loyal oenophile to try something new.
