If the charming facade, nautical-chic interiors (the work of acclaimed firm Roman and Williams), and rich history (parts of the hotel property date to the 1850s) weren’t enough, a peek at Greydon House’s maritime-inspired cocktail menu should be enough to have you envisioning yourself here on a balmy evening, gazing out from the veranda with a drink in hand.
We recently stopped by the boutique hotel, a 20-room retreat that opened its doors—to the delight of design-lovers everywhere—last fall. And while we can’t whisk you away to Nantucket, we did persuade bartender Emily Connell to mix us up a taste of summer à la Greydon House that you can recreate at home. Whether served at the hotel’s wood-paneled bar, on its famed cocktail cart (which roams the halls between rooms peddling predinner drinks), or at your backyard bar, the Raspberry Mojito is one delightful summer sip.
