It never hurts to have an excuse to order a drink, and there are two new ones at The Rittenhouse Hotel this month.

In anticipation of forthcoming biopic Grace of Monaco, The Library Bar is introducing a cocktail honoring Grace Kelly. Starting on the Philadelphia native’s birthday (November 12), guests can order the Elegance and Grace, made with rose-water-infused vodka, rose petal nectar, champagne and candied rose petals. Priced at $16, the drink will be available through the end of December.

On the Rittenhouse Square side of the hotel, Smith & Wollensky is introducing a liquid lunch. From 11:30 AM-4 PM, Monday-Friday, you can stop into the steakhouse for a $30 prix fixe meal that celebrates liquid in terms of both brewing and braising. The drink part of the deal comes first with your choice of Sam Adams beer, and it's followed by soup and then one of three braised entrees including lamb shank, beef pie or cracklin’ pork. Not three martinis, but better than nothing.
