Daily Pampering: Royalton hotel serves up $495 punch at Forty Four

How much would you pay for a good drink? If money is no object (and in Daily Pampering, money is no object), you might consider shelling out more than $500 for a good punch.

Morgans Hotel Group’s Forty Four at Royalton hotel in New York City, and the bar’s all-star team of bartenders known as The Cocktail Collective, created a punch that pretty much beats out any punch Mom used to pour. Comprised of Blue Mountain – 21 year old Jamaican rum, fresh squeezed lime juice, demerara syrup, allspice dram and finished with a dusting of fresh ground Blue Mountain coffee and nutmeg, the punch cashes in at $495 (tip not included).

Forty Four is known for its innovative cocktail menu, which focuses on pre and post prohibition cocktails presented over crushed, cube and freshly chipped rocks of ice. The “Classics” section of the new cocktail menu pays homage to the finest hotel bars from around the globe with cocktails such as the “Hotel Nacional” and the “Vieux Carre”. New “Originals”, created by “The Cocktail Collective”, include dynamic Gin drinks like the “English 75” and the “Hocus Pocus”, and a soothing and witty Rye based contribution called, “The Reconciliation”.
