Summerfest by Loews Hotels

Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Summerfest by Loews Hotelsruns June 1, 2022, through Labor Day at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. Also available at multiple destinations across the portfolio, the program in Southern California infuses signature elements of the region with summer-themed offerings.

Summerfest Cocktail with SelvaRey Rum

Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel captures the flavors of summer with a uniquely created cocktail in partnership with Bruno Mars’ award-winning SelvaRey Rum. Offering a destination-specific spin on summer, Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel's signature “Summerfest Cocktail,” pairs SelvaRey with locally sourced ingredients and garnishes.

Ocean Avenue Milk Punch

  • 3.5 oz. SelvaRey Coconut Rum
  • 4 oz. Whole Milk
  • 4 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 0.5 oz. Demerara Syrup
  • 2 oz. Falernum Syrup
  • 4 oz. Coconut Water
  • 1.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

Combine all ingredients except milk into batching Container. Into a second Container add Milk. Slowly add all of the contents from the first container into the milk (not the other way around – you should see this curdle immediately). Stir Gently. Wait about 30 minutes to an hour – can store for 24 hours in a refrigerator. Strain through Cheesecloth – or coffee filter (the curds actually clarify the drink so it’s important to run the drink through the curds). Transfer the first 25% of the strained drink back into the filter – careful not to disturb the bed of curds. Once the curds are settled strain everything through once. Strain everything a second time for cleaner liquid. Store in Claret for service. Pour over a large cube for service. Fresh nutmeg over the top as garnish or no garnish.

Beachside Colada
