Cool cocktails

VAYA Vibes for at home

Cool cocktails for hot days

This summer shows what he can do. Only one thing helps: cool down! However, you have not always booked a holiday with VAYA and can refresh yourself in the pool, most of us do not have an own pool at home either. Our tip: Refresh yourself from within – in the summer you should make sure you drink enough anyway.

VAYA trendy cocktails

Of course, this should primarily be water. But in between you can also enjoy a delicious cocktail. Patrick Aichlseder is someone who knows how to create them. Born in Upper Austria, he won the sommelier training competition of the Sommelier Union Austria in 2020. After completing his education at the tourism schools in Baden, he worked at first-class locations, including the 5-star Hotel Coworth Park in Ascot, UK, and earned numerous additional diplomas. Among other things, he is a beer sommelier, sparkling wine sommelier, wine academic and certified sake sommelier.

Not only the guests of VAYA Post Saalbach, where he works as F&B manager, benefit from his expertise, but also those who have not yet been lucky enough to get to know the special VAYA vibes personally and taste his creations on site. He likes to share his recipes for cool drinks. What they all have in common: These cocktails are also easy to make for those who reach for the shaker for the first time. They are quick to prepare, refreshing and simply taste great.
