New Year, new developments! This month’s Cocktails We Crave column is especially exciting. Not only do we have a cool concoction to share, but it also hails from a delectable development at one of our most celebrated inns – the luxurious L’Auberge Provencale Bed and Breakfast in White Post, VA.

The inn is excited to announce the much-anticipated opening of its bar & lounge Le Bar, which features a new look, menu, and concept to accompany La Table Provencale – its farm-to-table restaurant renowned for its award-winning cuisine and wine list. Guests can now indulge in savory snacks, a sexy and chic Parisian atmosphere, and seasonal brasserie fare created with the freshest seasonal ingredients from a modern state-of-the-art kitchen. The innkeepers are thrilled to introduce an assortment of hand-crafted trendy cocktails, herb-infused drinks made from the inn’s gardens, and craft beer on tap. The bar & lounge will be operating every day except Tuesdays, from 11 AM–10 PM (brasserie fare beginning at 1PM).
