The flavors bursting in your mouth as you take sips through the straw, or, the tumbler turned pink with nostalgia, the Christmas cocktails here are unlike any you’ll find elsewhere.

December is here, and Christmas is just around the corner. The official festive season across the globe has begun, and this has blended into the contemporary lifestyle of so many Nepalis and the expat community in Kathmandu. The handicraft shops bring out their Christmas tree decorations, Xmas markets pop up everywhere, and then come the spirits of the joyous season…cocktails and wine and beer!
We Nepalis love our holidays, both traditional and international festivities a time for family and friends, and of course, parties. We all know the story of why Christmas is celebrated, and most of us would know the phrase, “12 Days of Christmas”, but do you know what it means? 12 Days of Christmas is also known as Twelvetide, starting from December 25 and ending on January 5. Each day from Christmas Day, the first day of Christmas to the fifth day of the New Year, celebrates various popes and saints’ days, and feasts and memorial days, depending on different church practices. However, here inside the Valley, we prefer more the Christmas Eve gigs and events, or even just a lovely evening out, to celebrate the occasion. We have made Christmas our own and turned up the volume!
Le Sherpa is the perfect place for such a festive occasion, the unpretentious atmosphere with its high standard European food in a fine-dining setting and a touch of class, along with the famous Sherpa hospitability. Supporting local producers to encourage development of standardization and trust in Nepali produce, Le Sherpa is best known for its Saturday farmers markets. On entering the vicinity, the words, The Museum, is visible in large yellow blocks, giving an instant playful feeling. Entering through the court, lined with small secured stores on your right and a beautifully placed coffee shop on the left, along with a fountain in the middle, Le Sherpa is absolutely intriguing!
Customer satisfaction is their main priority, even if it means breaking some fine-dining rules. But, no compromises on the real Sherpa hospitability extended by its experienced team led by Manager Ramesh Shrestha, speaking to whom about the upcoming festive season and the celebrations at Le Sherpa was an absolute pleasure. With a wide range of spirits and wine, its bar has come up with an interesting variety of cocktails for this season. The flavors bursting in your mouth as you take sips through the straw, or, the tumbler turned pink with nostalgia, the Christmas cocktails here are unlike any you’ll find elsewhere. Along with the regular beers in their cozy, modern bar, with its long wooden table and endearing bar stools, their choices of tapas and drinks are perfect for a night of celebration.
The Vanilla Cranberry Mimosa is the right drink for winter brunches and Christmas and New Year parties, and with only three ingredients, your order will be with you in no time. A fresh twist to a classic cocktail is the Pomegranate Moscow Mule, a vodka-based cocktail with ginger beer and lime juice, giving it a playful pink color. Tequila Sunrise and Boys Vanilla, usually fall drinks, take their winter stance at Le Sherpa still. Hot Rum Punch is a winter favorite of many, something spicy and something warm, and with cognac in the mix, it’s pretty irresistible! The choice of beers is simple and straightforward, just as anyone would like it—Gorkha, Carlsberg, Everest, and of course, the new and upcoming blending smoothly with Le Sherpa’s hospitability—Sherpa.
Wines and sparkling wines are always everyone’s favorite and go-to’s during the festive season, and Le Sherpa’s collection leaves no stone unturned for some of the best wines we can find in the Valley. So, shall we say, “Cheers to Christmas”?
