Summer Cocktail Series: The 'Femme Fatale'
By Hideaway Report Staff
August 7, 2014
In 1967, Jackie Kennedy visited Cambodia, fulfilling a lifelong dream of seeing Angkor Wat. During her stay in Phnom Penh, while listening to Prince Sihanouk’s own jazz composition, she was served a champagne cocktail as red as her lips. As the story goes, years later, the glass was found with her lipstick intact.
Today, to commemorate her visit, the elegant "Femme Fatale" cocktail is reborn at the Raffles Hotel Le Royal.
