Learn how to mix drinks in your hotel

For some people, knowing how to make a few cocktails just makes them a little cooler. For others, it’s a job. At any rate, at least one hotel is betting that people want to learn how to tend bar – or at least mix some cocktails.

The James (New York, Chicago, and coming to Miami) offers a new in-room mixology experience that goes far beyond the mini-bar and lets guests become expert mixologists in the privacy of their own suite. This is DIY, with a twist – literally!

Every room at The James is now equipped with all the supplies needed to create bespoke cocktails, including a pint glass printed with recipes crafted specifically for In-Room Mixology. Guests can order the In-Room Cocktail Experience as part of The James In-Room Dining menu and a perfectly proportioned set of liquors and ingredients will be delivered. In addition to the cost of liquor consumed from the Pantry, the tray of accoutrements is $28. Customization is what the experience is all about, and guests can choose whether they would like to prepare the drinks or watch and learn from an expert bartender for a private mixology lesson. Guests can enjoy the following selection of drinks as part of the In-Room Experience:ยท Corpse Reviver 2 (Gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc, Lemon)

The Marguerita (Tequila, Cointreau, Lime, Simple Syrup)

Old Havana (Rum, Simple Syrup, Lime, Bitters)

Blood & Sand (Bourbon, Cherry Heering, Sweet Vermouth, Orange)

Moscow Mule (Vodka, Lime, Ginger Ale, Bitters)

As part of the experience, guests can refer to a provided book, “American Bar,” with recipes for over 200 contemporary cocktail recipes, which is also available for purchase at the hotel for $35. Additionally for those who want to “mix outside the box,” the in-room bottles let guests bring their own imaginative cocktail creations to life.
