The minute you step foot into the lobby of Baron’s Cove, you will be treated like Hamptons royalty. The staff’s attitude and service at the Cape Resorts owned hotel is nothing short of impeccable. We joined head bartender, Kemoy Coombs (below) to get all of the inside scoop on how to make the perfect dirty martini and what the hottest drink of the Summer will be. Coombs shared that the ‘IT’ drink at Baron’s Cove for the Summer will be a beverage he created himself called ‘Don’t Blush’.

The drink expert came up with the cocktail while on a trip to Jamaica. He was sipping on a non-alcoholic lychee beverage when he thought, “This should be a cocktail!”. When he returned to Baron’s Cove, he crafted the perfect, refreshing, summer cocktail which consists of vodka, raspberries and lychee fruit. For a closer look at how Kimoy will be making ‘Don’t Blush’ (pictured above) all summer long, watch HERE. The expert bartender also shared some tips on how he perfects the dirty martini.
