Gin Fix from The Traveller Bar

Gin Fix from The Traveller Bar

Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Here's an idea if you happen to live (or visit) Seattle. Loews Hotels is saluting the golden age of the cocktail by launching the first-ever cross-country pop-up traveling bar. Featuring only four bar seats to invoke a speakeasy environment, The Traveller Bar is making the rounds—and serving them too—visiting each of Loews Hotels’ 24 properties, hitting 19 cities in 13 states!

The contemporary concept and constructed from an old elevator car, the space features a zinc-topped bar, four bar stools, and a back metal mesh wall lined with shelves of bottles and an impressive library of nearly 50 vintage cocktail books, including a first-edition of the oldest cocktail recipe book ever written, the Bar-Tender’s Guide, which sells for around $8,000 in today’s market. Toasting the contemporary “Golden Age of Cocktails,” The Traveller Bar offers a menu of 32 classic cocktails traditionally handcrafted by expert mixologists, including the Gin Fix. Here's a recipe you can make at home:
 
Ingredients:
2.00 oz. Botanist Gin
0.75 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
0.75 oz. Simple Syrup
3 Raspberries

Directions:
Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice. Strain into a rocks glass and pack with crushed ice. Garnish with raspberries.
