The Emerald Begins NESTING

The Emerald recently released details on its exclusive partnership with Thompson Hotel, further connecting the City’s evolving waterfront and bringing a new level of amenities and curated programming. Both current and future owners at The Emerald will enjoy curated food and beverage experiences, including discounted meals at Conversation, Thompson Seattle’s signature restaurant, plus a secret signature cocktail menu at The Nest, the hotel’s striking rooftop bar and lounge. As homebuyers begin moving in, we went behind-the-scenes with bartenders at The Nest to share the perfect recipe to celebrate your new nest at The Emerald and to get their take on our community.



Warm your new home with this recipe shared by our friends at Thompson Seattle’s Nest Rooftop Bar:


Gardenrita (It’s Kinda Like a Margarita, with a Thompson Twist)

1.25 oz espolon reposado tequila

.5 oz sipsmith gin

.75 oz lime juice

.5 oz cucumber juice

.5 oz agave syrup

.75 oz ancho reyes

1 dash celery bitters
1 dash firewater bitters
Shake & roll into a collins glass | garnish with 2 cucumber slices


If The Emerald were a cocktail what would the ingredients be?


The Emerald screams ‘luxury’ and ‘sophistication’ which is (and always will be) a Vesper Martini using Hendricks as the base spirit. However, unlike Bond, this Vesper is stirred not shaken to keep the integrity of the ingredients intact. Classy, sophisticated, fun.



What’s the most popular cocktail at The Nest?


Pea Diddy (created by our very own, Lexi Birkebak)

Pea flower infused Ketel One Vodka, lemon, ramazzotti Rosati, simple, tiki bitters


The Nest’s “Secret Signature Cocktail Menu” for The Emerald includes:


Tequila Sunset – $16

el jimador tequila, orange juice, blackberry brandy, cherry


Nouveau Old Fashioned – $16

Bourbon, remy vsop, dry curacao, demerara, ango & orange bitters

*Cocktail menu may change seasonally
