Christmas is over, and soon people from all over will be coming to New York City to celebrate New Year’s Eve. The conversation now turns away from finding the best gifts and holiday events to how to keep warm on our long, cold New York winter nights.
You can snuggle under the lush comforters with a cup of tea or coffee while you enjoy a good book, a TV show, or an amazing view of the city from your hotel room. If you’d rather go out (and you’re 21+), we have some excellent advice on where to find the best winter cocktails in NY.
These winter cocktails in NY all have a delicious, unique kick that will warm you from the inside out.
For something that really turns up the heat, we recommend Tuti’s Jalapeno and Cucumber cocktail. Made with Villa ONE Blanco, Lime Juice, Agave, Cucumber, and Jalapeno, this spicy cocktail is sure to keep you warm this January. The best part? Tuti Lounge&Bar is located right inside The Marmara Park Avenue.
Death & Co is an award-winning cocktail bar located in the East Village, and you won’t find a better tasting eggnog in NYC. Made with Old Grandad 114 Bourbon, Smith & Cross Jamaican Rum, Malmsey Madeira, Pierre Ferrand Ambre, heavy cream, and whole milk, this has earned its place in their “rich & comforting” drink category.
Patent Pending is a cocktail bar located in downtown Manhattan, in a building rich with history. It was once the home of Nikola Tesla, and the bar has wholeheartedly embraced his innovative spirit. It’s also home to one of our favorite winter cocktails in NY: Made from Memory. This hot cocktail has gin, apple brandy, orange liqueur, fig leaf, earl grey tea, and cream. It’s a bit like Christmas in a glass, and it will certainly warm you up after a walk in the cold.
Raines Law Room in Chelsea has exposed brick, comfortable sofas, and plush chairs that will make you feel as if you are taking refuge in a warm, vintage study. What does every vintage study have in spades (if the period dramas are to be believed)? Bourbon. We recommend trying the Eightfold Path, which includes allspice, ginger, vanilla, cardamom bitters, and, of course, bourbon.
Valerie is a great place for meals and delicious winter cocktails in Midtown. Fabled Leaves has all the ingredients to make your night warm and cozy: Suntory Toki Japanese Whiskey, Goslings 151 Rum, Ancho Reyes, pumpkin puree, lemon juice, angostura bitters, and cinnamon.
If you’re a chocolate lover, you simply must visit Ayza during your stay. Ayza offers dinner, brunch, dessert, and, of course, specialty chocolate martinis and wine & chocolate pairings. Our top choice for a winter cocktail, however, has to be their delicious spiced mulled wine.
We could go on for days about all the things to do in new york at Christmas that you can partake in during your stay at The Marmara Park Avenue, such as enjoying delicious winter cocktails in NY. However, we believe it’s time to stop talking and take action.
