MacArthur at Home: 3 Signature Cocktail Recipes

Full of winding paths, secret nooks, convivial gathering places and lively culinary hubs, MacArthur Place inspires serendipitous and memorable moments at every turn. With the doors to our hotel temporarily closed, we thought we’d bring a few of our favorite MacArthur Moments to the comfort of your home. During this time, The Bar at MacArthur is taking a healthy pause on service, and home-time happy hour starting a little earlier these days, for these reasons we invite you to share in a few of our secrets. Below are three of our signature cocktails, rooted in the classics, but with our own fresh flair and local botanicals.
