Cress Bar

​​Breathtaking Red Rock vistas and creekside tranquility, charmed dining experiences, intimate cottages, a holistic, natural spa and memories to last a lifetime – L’Auberge de Sedona is life nourished. While on the hotel grounds, the creekside euphoria is sensed through every interaction with an intention to create authentic experiences that can be remembered once guests return home to their day-to-day routines. Through sharing the recipe for the signature cocktail to Cress Bar, Love Affair, we strive to curate a relaxing homemade creekside experience, one sip at a time. Enjoy this summer cocktail while soaking in your hometown summer atmosphere or in the winter when you desire a taste of summer.
