No need to leave The Peninsula Beverly Hills to get a great cocktail: The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel serves plenty of signature drinks right under its roof. Your first stop should be The Club Bar, a cozy, dark-wood bar with a fireplace and Oriental carpeting that’s perfect for an after-dinner drink. Signature cocktails include the California Collins, made with fresh lemon juice, St-Germain elderflower liqueur, muddled strawberries and Bombay Sapphire gin. For a simpler mix, try the Peninsula Bellini, made with Veuve Clicquot and peach nectar.
Up at The Roof Garden bar you’ll find the fruity cocktails are popular poolside, such as the Pomegranate Mojito and the spicy Jalapeño Margarita. Or you might want to try one of the bar’s latest additions: Sunset on the Roof, made with Absolut Mandarin, blood orange purée and fresh lemon juice.
