The farm to table concept, which combines the culinary work of top chefs with local, organic farmers, has been trending for some time, encouraging the world to eat fresh, locally grown produce. Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto has taken the farm to table concept even further, introducing their first farm to bar initiative at the resort. Using spices and herbs grown in a pyramid garden at the resort, bartenders create fresh and flavorful libations that are just as visually appealing as they are appetizing. During your next stay at Villa del Palmar Loreto, you can sample one or more of these original creations and even learn how to make them on your own, allowing you to take home a part of your Loreto vacation.
The farm to table concept came out of a public desire to reduce the ecological footprint of the food we eat. By eating locally grown produce, diners are not only helping to support local farms, but they are also reducing the pollution associated with the shipping of foods across borders and long distances. The Farm to Table concept brings fresh flavors to the table, allowing guests to savor creations that are locally grown and inspired.
The management at Villa del Palmar Loreto decided to take the farm to table concept even further by implementing a Farm to Bar option at the Market Restaurant. When you sit down to dine, you’ll be able to choose from a number of fresh cocktails that utilize the lavender, mint, peppermint, basil, rosemary, thyme, rue, and oregano that is homegrown at the resort. After you make your choice, you’ll be served a drink that showcases the flavors of the herb or spice you’ve chosen. These cocktails are full of flavor and originality, giving you something to enjoy as you dine on vacation.
After enjoying a few fresh cocktails, you might find yourself inspired to create your own farm to bar libations once you’ve returned home from your trip to Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto. If so, learn how to create a few of the garden-fresh cocktails before you leave. Every Wednesday at 3 pm, the bartenders at The Market Restaurant invite guests to learn about the farm to bar concept, including the growing process, the cultivation of herbs, and how to prepare your own infused cocktails. After a brief history, the real experience begins as you grab the herbs of your choice and head back to the bar. At this point, you’ll prep the leaves and learn how to create one of the resort’s recipes. With this information and a drink in hand, you’ll be inspired to take your new knowledge back home where you can create all the infused drinks you want.
The farm to bar concept at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is just one more way the resort is putting the well-being of guests and the environment first. Rather than the artificial flavors and sugary syrups of most cocktails, the farm to bar libations prepared at Villa del Palmar Loreto are infused with fresh herbs grown directly at The Market Restaurant, which is a better, healthier way of enjoying a drink. Whether you’re sipping environmentally conscious cocktails by the bar, strolling the pristine beach, or playing golf on the greens that preserve the natural beauty of Loreto, you’ll feel a little closer to Mother Nature on your next trip to Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto.
