MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Whether your go-to spirit is vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey or rum, you’ll find something delicious to sip on at the Pool Bar. Tequila lovers should definitely try the Royal Citrus Ritatini, made with Avion Silver, Cointreau and fresh lime, or the Smokey Rita — a twist on the classic marg that spotlights Del Maguey Vida Blanco mezcal, triple sec, orange juice and margarita mix. If you’re more into whiskey or bourbon, opt for a classic Manhattan or a Rob Roy, both blended with just the right amount of sweet vermouth. And if you’re in the mood for something ginny, try the blood orange negroni — elevated with a small splash of blood orange, it’ll transport you straight to the storied bars of Florence, where this classic aperitif was born.

You can also dial up your night with a glamorous champagne cocktail, topped with Domaine Chandon and sweetened with an Angostura-doused sugar cube. Or sip your way across the Caribbean with a Zacapa rum-spiked daiquiri, shaken hard and double-strained, or a classic Papa Doble, prepared with Bacardi Superior rum, lychee and grapefruit juice.

Those who prefer their drinks on the fruity side will love the Purple Haze, made with Bacardi 8 rum, blue curacao and Pernod, and shaken with pineapple juice, passion fruit puree and a splash of grenadine. For a cocktail that doubles as dessert, opt for the aptly-named Red Velvet Cake, a decadent infusion of limoncello, dark chocolate liqueur, crème de cacao white and strawberry puree. If you’re craving something smooth, but strong, there’s the Green Goddess. It’s a potent blend of Belvedere vodka, Hennessy, blue curacao and mango puree, topped off with a twist of lemon. And for fans of fizzy drinks, it doesn’t get better than the Let’s Get Fizzical, a refreshingly light combination of passion fruit puree, apple juice and St-Germain elderflower liquere topped with prosseco.
