The Athenaeum bar celebrates World Tennis Day

Strawberry Whiskey SourThe bar team at The Athenaeum hotel in London has created the Strawberry Whiskey Sour cocktail (pictured) to celebrate World Tennis Day.

The drink was inspired by the recreation of the match between two of America’s greatest tennis players, Pete Sampras and Andre Aggasi, which takes place today (March 3) at the World Tennis Day Showdown at Earls Court, London.

Combining the American spirit of bourbon with a quintessential flavour of England, strawberries, the cocktail will be available in The Athenaeum bar from today – World Tennis Day – until the end of March. It is priced £13.50

The Athenaeum is the official hotel partner of the World Tennis Day Showdown which also features tennis legends Pat Cash and Ivan Lendl. An invite-only cocktail party was held last night at The Athenaeum to celebrate the event.
