The Tower Smash

The art deco-styled, circa 1929 Sunset Tower Hotel hovers above Sunset Boulevard, exuding throwback sophistication. Think old Hollywood glamour and stunning vistas paired with plenty of silver screen sirens as you kick back in the chic Tower Bar, cocktail in hand. —Jason Oliver Nixon

5–6 basil leaves, lightly muddled
Juice of one lemon + half a lemon for the glass
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1/2 oz. ginger syrup
2 oz. Reposado tequila

Shake and strain all ingredients over lemon half in a bucket glass. Add ice and a basil leaf garnish.

"The Smash is refreshing and has a wonderful balance between sweet and tart. Plus, it is low-calorie. This is Hollywood, after all." —Tower Bar bartender Brett Zimmerman
