September 30th, 2019 | The Flavors of New York
Crisp air, changing leaves and warm spices are what makes fall a favorite time of year. Following the seasons as they pass means embracing the flavors that come with them. Right now, that translates into food and drinks featuring pumpkin, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, apple, maple, molasses, and nuts.
The ultimate fall drink has pumpkin spice. Starbucks may have popularized pumpkin spice lattes around the world, but there are many other ways to enjoy that special mixture. Combinations range from pumpkin spice chai, pumpkin and gingerbread, pumpkin pie, and many more. Visit our favorite coffee shops in Midtown to find out what their fall drinks are.
Cider Week New York City will run from November 8-17, 2019. This festival celebrates the glorious drink that results from crushing ripe apples and fermenting them. It sounds simple but the myriad of flavors, textures and aromas have gained a loyal following. Learn about how cider is made, check out the booths of upstate farms and orchards, or find out how to pair cider with food. Participating in tastings will show you exactly how varied cider can be.
New York has countless craft beer bars, and many of them rotate their beers on tap according to seasonal ingredients. Bars are also great if you want cider but can’t make it to Cider Week. Look for pumpkin ales at these popular craft beer bars: Arts and Crafts Beer Parlor, The Ginger Man, Beer Culture and Alphabet City Beer Co. If you’re not feeling the beer, head to any of these bars and restaurants for wine lovers.
The world of mixology thrives on experimentation. What better way to get you into the mood for sweater weather than by sipping on an aromatic and warm-spiced cocktail? Look no further than Bar 44! Our talented mixologists have concocted specialty cocktails that feature some of the best fall ingredients: cinnamon, maple, ginger and nuts.
