The Governess Cocktail

Get ready to stir things up and become a Pulitzer’s Bar bartender for one evening.

A visit to Pulitzer’s Bar will have to be postponed to a later time in the year. If you can’t visit the bar, bring the bar to you, right?

Try making one of the signature cocktails yourself and who knows, you might even improve your mixology skills so much that you’ll be the next guest bartender in Pulitzer’s Bar.

The current menu is inspired on Agatha Christie’s best-known crime novel, Murder on the Orient Express. Each drink carries the name of one of the characters, and the ingredients as well as the taste notes reflect the characteristics of the novel characters in the drink.

Take The Governess for example. A delicious drink that can be defined as light, refreshing, citrusy and dry. Make this iconic cocktail at home and you’ll definitely impress your partner or flatmate.
