Living the Dream in Monte Carlo

There are those cities that, when you visit them, it feels less like real life and more like you were dropped into someone’s fantasy or else the picturesque set of a romantic comedy. Monte Carlo is definitely one of those cities, and Giada De Laurentiis is giving us a tour of the dreamy town on 'Giada in Paradise: Monte Carlo.'

Giada tries her hand at risky roulette in the ritzy and romantic city of Monte Carlo.

There are those cities that, when you visit them, it feels less like real life and more like you were dropped into someone’s fantasy or else the picturesque set of a romantic comedy.  Monte Carlo is definitely one of those cities. Luxurious hotels, elaborate architecture, world class restaurants, sports cars that would make James Bond drool and to top it all off, both the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea as its scenic backdrop: welcome to paradise. If you’re having trouble picturing this dazzling and dreamy destination, than join your equally classy tour-guide Giada De Laurentiis tonight at 8pm ET as she takes us along for a tour of this romantic and royal town on Giada in Paradise: Monte Carlo.

One of her first stops is the cocktail bar at the Columbus hotel. Known as the place to “see and be seen in Monaco,” this classically cool bar boasts an outstanding cocktail list, including the infamous Cocktail Grace.  Named after the beautiful and beloved actress turned princess Grace Kelly, or “Princess Grace” to those in Monaco, this drink is as feminine and elegant as its iconic namesake.  Crisp and cold champagne gets sweetened with a bit of rose jelly and aromatic rose liqueur, which give it delicate but deliberate floral notes, reminiscent of a stroll through a rose garden. And that’s just one little sip of the city.

Stir yourself up your own stylish Cocktail Grace and watch Giada (the Grace Kelly of Cooking Channel) as she paints the full picture of Monte Carlo tonight, January 20, at 8:00 pm ET, the first stop on the Giada in Paradise tour.
