1st Edition of the Gin Tonic Route in Fuengirola


The city of Fuengirola is known in all Costa del Sol for organising wonderful culinary routes. It started with the erotic tapas route, then came the route of soupy hot dishes known as “La Cazuela de la Abuela” and now it is time for the most innovative of them all: The Gin Tonic Route.

This will be its first edition, it will take place from the 23rd of May till the 9th of June and many are the establishments that will compete to get the biggest number of votes and win the plaque that will prove they prepare the best gin tonics in town.

The main aim of this route is to make people have fun and make them try innovative and original gin tonics for just 6 euros.

Like in the other routes, there will be a passport, in this case “The Gin passport”, which will get stamped each time you order a gin tonic. This will also contain information about the event and a map with all the participant bars.

It is true that the gin tonic is not a new idea or a new creation but in the past few years it has become one of the trendiest and most popular cocktails in Spain.

By the way, did you know that it is considered as a very digestive drink? It seems that the combination of bitter, sweet and liquoriced flavours speeds up digestion… How interesting!

If you are currently staying at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, and, like J.K Rowling or the Earl of Wessex, gin tonic is your favourite drink, do not hesitate! Get your “Gin passport” and enjoy the best gin tonics you have ever tried!!

The Wine Museum in Malaga


Some weeks ago we talked about the extensive wine list available in the restaurant of Hotel Florida Spa and also explained how some of the wines we offer come from the Malaga region.

Well, the relationship between Malaga and wine is so close that we even have our own Museum of Wine.

The Museum of Wine is in Malaga city only 10 minutes away from the Malaga Centre train station.

Located in Plaza de Viñeros this museum is housed in an 18th Century building and was created out of desire of having a place where our wines and culture could be shown and tasted.

If you fancy visiting this interesting museum and knowing a bit more about wines from Malaga here in Hotel Florida Spa we encourage you to do it next Saturday the 11th of May as this is when Malaga celebrates its fantastic White Night.

Due to this special occasion the museum will remain open all night and its entrance will be free. That night it will also offer free tastings of ecologic wine, so if you would like to visit it and participate in the tastings you will have to sign up  beforehand by emailing promocion@museovinomalaga.com.
