Rosewood Miramar Beach Launches The Manor Bar’s Co-Author Cocktail Series

The Manor Bar, Rosewood Miramar Beach’s sophisticated retreat for handcrafted cocktails, presents the Co-Author Cocktail Series featuring North America’s top bar talent. As The Manor Bar’s new cocktail menu celebrates women in literature, the guest series will feature some of the continent’s most esteemed female spirits professionals making appearances behind the bar, including Christina Veira of Bar Mordecai (ROKU Industry Icon in 2022’s inaugural 50Best North America); Alba Huerta of Julep (2022 James Beard award winner for Outstanding Bar Program); and Julie Reiner of Clover Club (Helen David Lifetime Achievement Award at Tales of the Cocktail 2022).
