Hilton Garden Inn Shakes Up Its Cocktail Menu with the Help of Judy Greer, Award-Winning Actress and Star of Hotel Brand’s Ad Campaign
New specialty drink, Judy’s Garden Gin, debuts at Garden Grille & Bar, full-service restaurant and bars located at Hilton Garden Inn properties nationwide
MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Garden Inn, a dining and drink leader in the upscale hotel category, has partnered with award-winning actress, director and author Judy Greer to create a new specialty cocktail, Judy’s Garden Gin. Judy has worked with Hilton Garden Inn since 2017 as the star of its ad campaign and has now joined forces with the hotel brand on the delicious cocktail. A fresh twist on the classic Daisy, Judy’s Garden Gin hits menus nationwide at Garden Grille & Bar, Hilton Garden Inn’s full-service restaurant and bar.
“There’s nothing I love more about traveling than stopping by the hotel bar for a delicious drink and swapping vacation stories with my fellow guests or bartender. Which is why I’m super excited to announce that I’m putting my cocktail connoisseur skills to work and teaming up with Hilton Garden Inn to create my very own specialty drink,” said Judy Greer. “My fun twist on the classic Daisy, Judy’s Garden Gin is a light and oh-so-terrifically tart cocktail, perfect for any occasion. Cheers!”
Capitalizing on the versatility of gin and the spirit’s growing popularity, Judy’s Garden Gin combines Tanqueray® gin, fresh lemon juice, Chambord® liqueur, and simple syrup, garnished with a lemon wheel. Judy’s Garden Gin pairs perfectly with Hilton Garden Inn’s shareable small plates including the Spicy Meatballs and Fresh Mozzarella, bringing a balance to the heat of the dish. Or guests can enjoy their cocktail alongside the Artisan Cheese Tasting Board, which provides a pleasant earthiness to complement the light, tart profile of the drink.
“Hilton Garden Inn prides itself on providing our guests fresh and flavorful food and beverage options that are elevated, unexpected and always delicious – and this inspired specialty cocktail does just that,” said John Greenleaf, global head, Hilton Garden Inn. “Collaborating with Judy behind the bar takes our partnership and our continuously evolving menu to another level as we serve up incredibly tasty, memorable food and beverage offerings that enhance the guest experience.”
Perfectly embodying Hilton Garden Inn’s brand personality, Judy has been the star of the brand’s advertising campaign since 2017, which includes new advertisements on Instagram and Facebook. Hilton Garden Inn is always looking to elevate guests’ travel experiences and the new advertisements highlight the importance of delivering simple things at a higher standard, featuring the brand’s award-winning service, full-service restaurant and bar, and high-end amenities.
A food and beverage leader in the upscale hotel category, Hilton Garden Inn continually strives to anticipate and cater to the evolving dining needs and preferences of its guests. Hilton Garden Inn offers full-service restaurants and bars focused on handcrafted cocktails, local craft beers, varietal wines and shareable small plates.
