Ritz Paris’ Colin Peter Field Mixing Drinks in Tuscany

While renovation work continues, the famed head barman of the hotel’s Bar Hemingway will be doing a stint behind the bar at Il Pellicano resort.

ITALIAN STINT: While renovation work continues at the Ritz Paris, Colin Peter Field, the famed head barman of the hotel’s Bar Hemingway, will be mixing drinks this summer at the Il Pellicano resort in Tuscany’s Porto Ercole. To start his one-week stay at the Italian hotel, on Aug. 18 Field will serve his new Il Pellicano Pimm’s cocktail. Over the following days, the British bartender will hold cocktail-making classes and drink tastings. On Aug. 22, he will mark his last night at Il Pellicano by preparing concoctions inspired by the Eighties, the theme of the poolside event planned for that night.

During the week, Il Pellicano will also offer a special “Colin Field Menu” — five courses prepared by Italian chef Antonio Guida — matched with drinks created by Field.
