One Weekend, Six Cocktails

This past weekend, I found myself drinking several delicious cocktails at several excellent establishments. They were so delicious, in fact, that I thought I should share them all with you so you could enjoy them yourselves when you’re in the mood for a tasty, refreshing, alcoholic treat.

1. Some kind of whiskey punch at The Standard East Village

Cool description, bro, but sorry, I can’t remember what it was called nor find a menu online. I do remember that it was a very delicious, refreshing cocktail that I enjoyed outdoors on the second floor mezzanine bar. I highly recommend this spot as a delightful place to chill.

2. Ssam’s Cup at Momofuku Ssam Bar

Seriously, it’s hard (if not impossible) to go wrong at the almighty Ssam Bar, but this cocktail is another winner! A sweet and fruity (but not too much of either) blend of Lillet Rouge, Gin, Cognac, bitter cherry, strawberry and lemon.

3. George Cohan at The Rum House

OK, first, The Rum House is the single greatest bar in Times Square. When you enter its doors, you find yourself in a dark, quiet, classic oasis where you can order a fantastic cocktail made expertly by awesome bartenders – no appletinis up in this bitch! Anyway, I love the George Cohan – Johnny Drum Bourbon, Cocchi Americano, citrus, Angostura bitters and egg white, served over two ice cubes. Delish.

4. Secrets at Nitehawk Cinema

I love everything about Nitehawk, including the cocktails! The barrel aged dranks are awesome, but I loooooove the special cocktail right now for The Master, Secrets. It’s Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Dolin Rouge Sweet Vermouth, orange curacao and lime. Yes, I like citrus-y bourbon cocktails. I also like Joaquin Phoenix. What?

5. Dwarf Lord at Roebling Tea Room

Aside from being the best f-cking place to eat dinner in Williamsburg (for real), Roebling Tea Room makes a mean cocktail. I can’t find on the internet exactly what’s in the Dwarf Lord, but I do know that it includes some kind of brown whiskey-type alcohol, citrus and earl grey tea! Luhhhhhh that hint of earl grey.

6. Pretzel Milkshake at Momofuku Milk Bar

Ok, ok, this last one isn’t alcoholic (though you CAN get a boozy version at the Williamsburg location), but it’s SO GOOD that I must share. You might think that you know what the best thing to get at Milk Bar is, but unless you’ve had the pretzel milkshake, you don’t. IT’S LIKE DRINKING A CHOCOLATE COVERED PRETZEL, PPL. Also, definitely ask for some chocolate syrup to be added – it makes it even more awesome.
