The Alfond Inn at Rollins Unveils “The Collection” Cocktail Menu

In Tribute To The Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art

The Alfond Inn at Rollins has introduced a creative new cocktail menu for its Hamilton Kitchen restaurant and lounge area, honoring The Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art for Rollins College (part of the Cornell Fine  Arts Museum), which the hotel showcases.

The Everything For love cocktail, made of Ron Zacapa Centenario, Simple Syrup, Mole bitters, Orange bitters, with chocolate straw and grapefruit peel pays tribute to the Everything For Love Blue Neon sign artwork by Tracey Emin, located near the entrance to the hotel elevators.

The No Worries cocktail, made of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Muddles Pineapple, sage, lemon juice and Simple Syrup pays tribute to Don’t Worry, a sculpture by Matt Keegan, from a poster by James Richards, of a poem by Josef Albers 2012, located in the hotel library.

The Mirrors Envy cocktail, made of Tito’s Vodka, Green Tea, rosemary, lemon juice and Simple Syrup is inspired by the title of Mark Flood’s Mirror Mirror 2012, an obvious allusion to the Evil Queen’s refrain in the classic fairy tale Snow White.  The evil queen was green with envy.  Located across from the Hamilton’s Kitchen hostess stand.

Other new Signature Cocktails on the menu include The MBA with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, fresh muddled blackberries, orange, Simple Syrup and ginger ale; the Watermelon Basil Rita with Patron Silver Tequila, house made sweet and sour, basil and watermelon; and the Strawberry Dutch Mule with Ketel One Orange, fresh lime juice, Simple Syrup, strawberries and ginger beer.

The Alfond Inn at Rollins offers free art tours of the in-house collection, leaving from the lobby, every Sunday at 1 p.m.,  as well as Happy Hour Art Tours the first Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m., which gives participants the opportunity to enjoy the hotel’s Happy Hour (3 to 7 p.m.) before or after the tour.  No reservations are required for either art tour.  For more information on The Alfond Inn at Rollins, go to www.thealfondinn.com.
