Here are 6 delicious cocktails to help you clench your thirst and get a buzz on. 

Mexican Mule

Mexican Mule puts a twist on a classic by switching the vodka in a Moscow Mule with tequila. To make this tasty cocktail, freshly squeezed lime juice gets mixed with some simple syrup and tequila. After the ingredients are cooled down on crushed ice, the glass gets topped with ginger ale to create this beautiful drink.

The copper mug in which this cocktail will get served will help keep the cocktail cool and refreshing. 

Blueberry Bramble

If you are looking for a fruity cocktail that will go down smoothly, a Blueberry Bramble might be the right choice for you. Made by mixing dry gin, blueberry puree, and fresh lime juice, then garnished with a couple of blueberries, this bramble variation is a keeper. 

The tinge of juniper that comes from the gin goes along very well with the sweetness of the blueberries. You won’t regret ordering one. 


A cocktail, born and raised in NYC. Invented in New York City’s famous Milk & Honey Bar, this scotch cocktail combines different taste profiles to create a complex yet satisfying drink. While the honey gives the cocktail a sweet aroma, the lemon juice provides a nice, sour taste to get things interesting. 

Usually garnished with some candied ginger, this New York native never disappoints.

Spanish Gin & Tonic 

Another classic with a twist. A gin and tonic will be a safe bet for anyone who is looking for a refreshing cocktail. But why not make things a little more interesting with some adjustments? Adding fresh herbs like mint, basil, sage, and thyme to the mixture  enriches the taste of this cocktail and gives it its southern European aroma. 

The added herbs will do this classic drink wonders by giving it a unique taste.

Cold Brew Negroni

Cold Brew Negroni is great for people who want a tasty cocktail but could still take some caffeine. The drink is relatively simple. Campari, gin, sweet vermouth, and cold brew coffee mixed together will cool you down on a sunny day and give you a caffeine rush to help you explore the city further.

Coffee and Campari complement each other very well to create a dark, bitter cocktail.

The Blue 

Nothing says summer like a big blue rum cocktail. The sweet taste of this spirit frequently lends itself to refreshing and colorful summer cocktails. The Blue is a drink we make in our own hotel bar by mixing high-quality rum with Blue Curacao Pineapple Juice, which gives the cocktail its distinct color. Topped with Coconut Berry flavored Redbull, it creates a sweet, frizzy, and fun drink.



New York City is the home to some of the best cocktail bars you can ask for, including The Dead Rabbit, Death & Company, and Mace, each staffed by talented bartenders that would love to mix a drink for you.
