Drink and be merry this winter with the city’s most inventive seasonal cocktails! From classic holiday mixes to elaborate spiced brews, these three drinks are sure to get you in the holiday spirit after long days of navigating Manhattan’s busy streets during the holiday season. Head to one of these spots with neighbors or friends for an adult-treat this December.
The Ribbon, styled in 1920’s décor, is an upscale restaurant/bar started by Eric and Bruce Bromberg on the Upper-West-Side, The Ribbon offers authentic fine dining as well as an amazing array of specialty cocktails. Try their “West Side Stormy,” mixed with El Dorado rum 8yr, house made ginger beer, cucumber and lime juice. A refreshing choice after a long day of holiday shopping.
Delicatessen, the epitome of SoHo dining, is a homey neighborhood bar that serves high-end comfort food, and artful cocktails with a friendly vibe. The drink of choice is the “Prince Street Cider,” with Montecristo Rum, apple cider, Domaine Canton and simple syrup with a cinnamon and lemon garnish. This is the ultimate fall/winter drink and it’s wonderful!
With a distinct and contemporary twist, SixtyFive is a sophisticated lounge at the top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. With stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, it’s a classic New York spot. Try “Town Car,” – Calvados du Pays d’Auge, lemon juice and cinnamon syrup. An adaptation on the original Side Car, this seasonal drink tastes like a warm apple pie, making it a perfect ending to your holiday meal.
