Or .. make your own in your hotel room:
The Surrey's in-room mixology program allows guests to select their spirit -- vodka, gin, tequila, rum or bourbon -- and a personal bartender arrives to their room with an old fashioned bar cart with all the fixings needed for 4-5 perfect drinks. With the choice of tequila the bartender will shake up a Blackberry Mint Margarita with blackberries, mint, lime juice, simple syrup and Patrón Silver. Invite your friends, you have your very own bar in your room!
