After a day of skiing, there is no better spot to hang out than the Lobby Bar at the Gstaad Palace. The vibe is like no other with great people, a cosy atmosphere and the most delicious drinks. When it came to what to wear today, I chose something semi-casual, very comfortable and super trendy. I am seriously obsessed with the New Retro Watch… the shape is just perfect. Hope you guys will have a chance to try it on soon.

Just in case, if you’re out here over the next few nights try one of my favourite cocktails…

I love most of Mario’s artfully crafted cocktails but some of my current favourites are the Pantherita – a chilled cocktail with lemon and raspberries and a shot of Curaçao and Tequila along with the Scherz Cocktail made of Martinis & Gin.

Preciously guarded by Ernst Andrea Scherz since the 1980s, they reflect the Scherz family’s attachment to luxury hospitality. They tell the tale of travels, favourites and the person who presided over the destiny of the Leading Hotels of the World.

A hotel collection incorporating the best addresses in the world with more than 400 hotels in 80 countries. The Gstaad Palace joined this famous institution in the 1950s.. In 2015, Ernst Scherz was elected Leading Legend of the year. A distinction which paid tribute to the passion with which for the past three generations the Gstaad Palace has offered its clients rare and authentic experiences, his style of hospitality and his commitment to preserving and developing independent luxury hospitality. A title also awarded to his lifelong friend, Jean-Jacques Gauer, owner of the Lausanne Palace & Spa. Today, the Gstaad Palace is the last 5* hotel in Switzerland to remain in the hands of family owners.
