Enjoy a taste of The Murray Hotel luxury at home with these bespoke cocktail recipes
IN our current climate, visiting a bar to enjoy a cocktail is definitely not recommended and may not even be possible, depending on your location. At Glass we recommend staying home, but we also believe that you can enjoy the luxury experience of The Popinjays Bar at The Murray Hotel from your very own kitchen. The hotel invites you, for the mean time, to indulge in their bespoke cocktails from home, and even perhaps take up a new skill – mixology – while in self-isolation. Whether alone or with your household, these cocktail recipes are transportive, perfect for anyone who appreciates and yearns for the luxury touch of The Popinjays Bar.
