Having reviewed thousands of hotels, we at Oyster.com have slept in many different beds, swam in hundreds of pools, and sipped quite a few fantastic hotel bar cocktails. (I mean, we have to review everything, right?)
Some of the most delicious hotel bar cocktails we’ve tried go beyond the gin and tonic — way beyond. Check out five of our favorite cocktails from hotel bars around the world. If you can’t make the trip, make them at home — we got the recipes. Either way, these drinks won’t disappoint.
The Cocktail: Lavender Lemondrop
Found at: Clift San Francisco
Arguably the chicest bar in San Francisco, the Redwood Room exudes a hip feel thanks to the eponymous, tree-lined walls, oversized portraits, and thoroughly classic design. Martinis are this spot’s specialty — especially with the business crowd who frequents the Clift — with flavors ranging from blue cheese to sweet lychee. Redwood Room uses all-natural ingredients, so we recommend you do the same when serving up your own crop of these cocktails.
