Pink October in Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo

This October, like nearly 40 countries around the world, Monaco will turn pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In collaboration with the charity ‘Pink Ribbon Monaco’ and in celebration of a new breast cancer screening center in the Principality of Monaco, Hôtel Métropole will show its support with a ‘Pink October’ theme running throughout the hotel from 02 to 31 October 2012.

Besides pink lighting and other pink touches of the interior, the bar manager, Mickaël Bellec, has created the ‘Rose Passion Cocktail’: a cognac-based mix infused with Madagascar vanilla, white cocoa, a wild strawberry liqueur and dairy cream. The cocktail will be served in a pink shaker with strawberry candy. In addition, the head pastry cook, Satomi Kanai, has designed a desert called ‘Pink’ made up of egg white, hibiscus jelly and a yuzu sauce.
The ‘Pink October’ theme is in keeping with the Hotel Métropole’s ongoing artistic themes which are installed approximately every four months. Maud Lesur, the Artistic Director at Hotel Métropole Monte-Carlo, works together with “Miss Rose”, Hotel Métropole’s highly talented in-house stylist and florist, to dress and transform the hotel throughout the seasons.
