Make These Nature Themed AR Cocktails at Home This Weekend

Just in time for the weekend we’re sharing three bright and refreshing cocktail recipes that were served at ARTECHOUSE DC during the duration of the Aurora: Spirit of the Northern Lights installation last winter.

For those who frequent our shows know that each bar menu is inspired by the current exhibition or installation on view. As this one had playful winter elements, the bar menu also boasted festive ingredients like pomegranate, rosemary, colored sugars, cinnamon, and sage. The cups even got in the theme with some of them featuring Christmas wreaths!

But that doesn’t mean you can’t make these drinks your own and adapt them for the season! Use these recipes as a guideline for your own creations. And to add an augmented reality component to it -- just like we feature in our bars in New York City and DC -- download the ARTECHOUSE app and use one our many filters available when snapping a picture of your libation. Share it on social media with the hashtag #ARBarAtHome and we will share our favorites!
