Top 5 Favorite Cocktails (For Now!)
Here are my top 5 (for now!):
Dirty Martini with Blue Cheese Olives at Hillstone--A sturdy, hearty, salty, blue cheese mammoth of a drink and goes well with my steaks, ribs and all the iron-laden entrees. The olives are huge and filled with creamy blue cheese not the dinky olives you get in most places. And to enhance the experience, the exceptional servers there will pour your martini into another cold martini glass when it begins to get tepid. Amazing attention to detail.
The Margarita at The Eddy--This is not on their menu but they will definitely make it for you-all you have to do is ask-all mix made in house and just perfect. Other cocktails on menu really good too.
Red Light at Nomad-- I would go to the Nomad for the decor alone, but the food is great too. and to top it off, the drinks are inventive (ingredients like velvet falernum and wormwood bitters), sophisticated and sexy. I also like the Start Me Up and La Pina for when I am feeling a little girly.
Amarulu at Astor Place Wines-- I am cheating here but I could not resist this cream liqueur from South Africa made from the fruit of the marulu tree and tastes nutty and sinful. Pour at home over ice and experience pure seduction: sultry and perfect with a bubble bath! It is so good, you feel helpless after drinking it. For more decadence, toast some coconut and sprinkle.
The Jenkin at St. Mazie Bar & Supper Club--Over in Williamsburg, in trendy, hipster heaven, just in time for the chilly fall weather is this spicy pumpkin drink warm drink. Applejack, bourbon, pumpkin spice syrup and orange bitters-- I wish they kept it all year long!
