Although you know I'm not yet too fond of Astor Room's food, I do adore their drinks and fabulous atmosphere. That's why when I noticed their new summer drinks menu, I was intrigued and excited to share it with you.
What I love most about Astor Room's cocktails in general is the careful way in which they're prepared and the fresh ingredients such as seasonal fruit and fresh herbs that go into them. Each drink is prepared with great precision and involves an element of drama, executed by talented mixologists. I urge you to experience it for yourself.
