The Westbury, The Wellesley and The Park Tower Knightsbridge have all created an exclusive cocktail in partnership with actor Waris Ahluwalia (of Wes Anderson fame). As a long-time ‘Global Explorer’ for The Luxury Collection and staunch supporter of Elephant Family charity, Waris has infused each cocktail with his House of Waris teas to raise funds for Elephant Family’s conservation efforts in India ahead of The Extraordinary Elephant Adventure rally across Rajasthan in November. 100% of the profits from the drinks will be donated to Elephant Family charity.
Each rather tempting (even more so as it's doing good..) is below -
The Polo Bar at The Westbury, a Luxury Collection Hotel, found inspiration in the Hindu symbol of fortune. The Ganesha cocktail celebrates Indian flavours, with turmeric syrup perfectly paired with House of Waris Tea Elephant Gin-infused White Pomegranate Tea.
At The Wellesley Knightsbridge, a Luxury Collection Hotel, guests can enjoy the Hibiscus Royal, which blends House of Waris Organic Hibiscus Citrus Tea with Scotch whisky, vanilla syrup and Mandarin Napoleon. The result is a brightly coloured, citrusy serve, garnished with a physalis.
Finally, The Park Tower Knightsbridge, a Luxury Collection Hotel, has created Haze Tower, a classic cocktail with a twist. The Hyde Bar Whisky has been infused with House of Waris Tea Earl Grey Tea and paired with Gomme Syrup Giffard, finished with a dash of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
