Weekend at the Waldorf
A weekend at New York City’s famed Waldorf Astoria hotel may set you back thousands of dollars but fortunately we’re here to step in to give you a taste of life at the fine old hotel and residences, with just a quick shake of your cocktail shaker.
This delightful cocktail of white rum, fresh lime juice, Cointreau and strawberry syrup should help recreate the feeling of sitting at the bar in the art deco hotel, surrounded by previous guests, including nearly all of the American Presidents and permanent residents such as Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra.
The poet Langston Hughes once remarked “Wouldn’t a duplex high above the street be grand, with a view of the richest city in the world at your nose?” - but we’ll gladly settle for such a fine cocktail in our own home!
