“It’s the best margarita I’ve ever had…

Cocktails are all about taking drinking with the utmost respect, and margaritas deserve the same care. And like all great cocktails, the ingredients should accentuate what’s great about the liquor. And thanks to this agave nectar, the humble margarita tastes like never before.”

-Nick Kindelsperger “The Perfect Margarita” -The Tequila Society, U.K.

We’ve traveled the world in search of the best signature cocktails. Here are just a few more of our favorites.

Hamilton Place Gold Martini

Gold Leaves infused Stolichnaya Elit Vodka, Citrus Bitters, Martini Gold by Dolce & Gabbana, garnished with Gold Leaf Lakes and Fresh Grapefruit ZestBombay Sapphire is combined with fresh lemon, Chase English Rhubarb Liqueur, our own cordial made from strawberries and English sparkling rose, Fresh Mint Tincture and Yorkshire Rhubarb Soda. Crowned with seasonal British Strawberries, what could be a better way to raise a toast?!

Bangkok Chor Muang

Butterfly flower-infused raspberry vodka, lime juice, butterfly flower house-made syrup, 24-karat gold dustThe most popular specialty cocktail at the W Hotel in Bangkok stems from local flower markets. The Chor Muang uses vodka and syrup infused with the Butterfly Pea, a flower of Asian origin, as well as a gold-dusted flower as a garnish. The cocktail fits into a trend W sees across all its properties—the explosion in social media. “Taking pictures and Instagramming is so popular, we need to make sure these cocktails are absolutely beautiful,” Ms. Doyle says.

Washington, D.C. Sangria

Dry white wine, St-Germain liqueur, fresh pineapples, strawberries, oranges, lemonsDrinkers in the District of Columbi like to come in packs to the hotel’s outdoor space that looks out over the White House. Once there, many order pitches of sangria. “It’s really just a communal experience,” says Ms. Doyle. White sangria, made with dry white wine and St-Germain, is a bit lighter, more refreshing and more appealing than traditional red sangria during humid D.C. summers, she says.

Atlanta Cucumber Martini

Gin, simple syrup, fresh lemon juice, mint leaves, fresh cucumber slicesAtlantans are espically taken with the farm-to-table movement, which promotes the use of locally-sourced ingredients, says Ms. Doyle. Cucumbers are a natural fit because of their long growing season in Georgia. “They are always fresh, and there are tons of them,” Ms. Doyle says. The W Atlanta-Buckhead refers to its Cucumber Martini as “garden to glass.”

Taipei Green Mojito

Rum, fresh limes, mint syrup, white sugar, fresh mint, soda waterThe Green Mojito owes its status as the most popular specialty cocktail at the W Taipei to Anthony Bourdain. The celebrity chef drank one during a filming of his show “The Layover,” which first aired last year on the Travel Channel. The hotel sells about 13,000 mojitos a year—for an average of more than 35 a day—thank in part to Mojito Mondays, a weekly promotion where guests and locals enjoy specially priced pitchers of different flavors of mojitos, Ms. Doyle says.

Barcelona Eclipse Watermelon Martini

Vodka, simple syrup, fresh watermelonThe W Barcelona opened in 2009 and went to sell almost 9,000 watermelon martinis in its first year. The drink continues to be the most popular specialty cocktail. “I think it has something to do with Barcelona being such a vibrant city and people wanting to be flashy and show off themselves,” says Ms. Doyle. The chilled fuchsia drink is ordered by the after-work crowd and guests just in from the beach.
