In honor of historical elections, W Hotels Worldwide debuted its “All the President’s Cocktails,” a coloring book that celebrated the drinking habits of the United States’ former Commanders in Chief with 12 pages of presidents and their favorite cocktails. From George Washington’s Whiskey Old Fashioned to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Gin Martini and Honest Abe’s Cucumber Stiletto Mocktail, each page included an illustration to color along with
a cocktail recipe. Illustrated by Lindsay Mound, the book was exclusively available to guests who stayed in the EWOW Suite, the hotel’s version of the Presidential Suite, at any of the 24 W Hotels throughout the United States from Oct. 28 to Election Day, Nov. 8.
