Killer Cocktails to Drink at Pulitzer’s Bar in Amsterdam

The glamorous Pulitzer Amsterdam’s lobby bar was voted Netherlands’ ¨Best Hotel Bar of 2019¨.  Pulitzer’s Bar recently launched a new menu featuring 12 cocktails inspired by Agatha Christie’s best-known crime novel “Murder on the Orient Express.”  Each drink carries the name of one of the characters from the book, with ingredients and tasting notes that reflect the characteristics of these characters in the cocktail. 

We rounded up a few usual suspects, er, cocktails to closely investigate at Pulitzer´s Bar:
