At Sonesta, we take our #liquidart seriously, especially when it comes to refreshing summer cocktails and mocktails. This summer, ArtBar at Royal Sonesta Boston has rolled out a new drinks menu featuring their own twist on classic cocktails with mocktail versions of each available. If you are in the Boston area, be sure to grab a seat on ArtBar’s patio for the best views and to toast to summer with their latest creations, or try your hand at making them at home, along with these special summer recipes.
