Award-Winning Chef Chad Luethje Unveils Refreshing New Cocktail Menu

Red Mountain Resort in St. George, Utah is pleased to announce its new specialty cocktail menu at the Canyon Breeze Restaurant, featuring a collection of libations created by Executive Chef Chad Luethje. 

“We wanted to craft a cocktail menu that complements the active, healthy ambiance of the resort,” says Chef Luethje. “Each drink is prepared using natural ingredients like fresh mint and berries, and we replaced heavier alcohols with lighter, wine-based selections. Guests can enjoy a refreshing cocktail at the end of the day and not worry about feeling groggy the next morning.” 

The menu features ten unique cocktails, including updated classics like the Sagestone Mojito and Paradise Rim Piña Colada along with bespoke options like the Strawberry Chia Seed Agua Fresca and Agave Rosemary Cool Down. 

“Both the mojito and piña colada on our menu incorporate wine-based spirits instead of rum, which only have a 20% alcohol volume, which is lower than traditional rums,” says Chef Luethje. “And some of our other cocktails, like the Kayenta Cliffs Bloody Mary, are healthier than their traditional counterparts. Our Bloody Mary has 127 calories, versus 200 calories in a standard version. For the Desert Rose Margarita, we use Agave Wine instead of tequila, and that cuts the calories in half without sacrificing the flavor. ”

  • Sagestone Mojito: Ron Copa Rica Rum Wine Spirits, Fresh Squeezed Lime, Fresh Mint
