This Sunday, XS nightclub celebrates the grand reopening of its after-dark pool party, Night Swim. Along with the bash comes a new offering of signature cocktails served by the pitcher, because one glass just isn’t enough when splish-splashing to the beats of young Dutchman Afrojack.
Playing off the signature design of the swank Encore club, Branno V. Kent and bar manager Hedia Nouira created the Golden Pillar ($175 per pitcher) to reflect the beauty of the space. Subtle jasmine, florals and honey-almond from Hennessy Black have an aromatherapy-like calming effect invigorated by bright orange Cointreau and a generous squeeze of fresh lemon. Add a pop of ginger ale on top, and you can rock any party 24-karat style.
7 oz. Hennessy Black
3 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. simple syrup
splash ginger ale
juice from 2 lemons
Method: Add ice, Hennessy, Cointreau and simple syrup to a pitcher. Squeeze the lemons and top with ginger ale.
