Located in the heart of Knightsbridge in central London, The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park ticked all the right boxes for our little jaunt. The 188 room, five-star hotel overlooks the green expanse of Hyde Park with Harvey Nichols and Harrods on its doorstep. The ideal destination for some pre or post shopping cocktails and you know how I adore a lovingly made cocktail every so often!
I had it on good authority that the hotel's signature cocktail just happened to be the perfect colour befitting the occasion, so how could I resist? As we reclined in the relaxed surroundings of the hotel's fabulous Mandarin Bar perusing their leather bound cocktail ledger, I opted for the original Double 12 mixed with fresh basil giving it a verdant glow.
With cocktails this delicious I'm already looking forward to returning to the Mandarin Bar very soon. Slainte!
