7 Fall Cocktails in NYC

Ginger at Mace Cocktail Bar

Ginger Mace East Village Fall Cocktails

Avenue C has been hopping lately. Not just because of Zum Schneider’s Oktoberfest, but because of the new fall menu at Mace. Nico de Soto, the “globe-trotting bartender,” incorporates exotic spices from around the world such as, turmeric, black sesame and cassia into his mixology but we are loving the Ginger with marshmallow milk-washed bourbon, maple ginger syrup, carrot acid and Aval cider,

Campfire Fancy at Boilermaker

Campfire Fancy at Boilermaker

Hey East Villagers- not quite ready for cooler temps? Hit your neighborhood bar, Boilermaker. Both craft-beer AND craft-cocktail bar which means: cocktails on tap. Order this seasonal delight with scotch, house blend Creme de Cacao and Angostura with a toasted marshmallow from head bartender and creator, Sam Gauthier, and stick around for “Midnight Pancakes.” We recommend the S’mores flapjacks for your campfire-inspired night out.

Richard Harris at Electric Room at Dream Downtown

Richard Harris at Electric Room

Mixologist Johnny Swet at this British-inspired cocktail lounge is intensifying my “go-to” drink, the Whiskey-Ginger, this season by adding ginger snap liqueur and apple juice. Taste the range of spices – molasses, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon – combined with fruity apple and some triple-distilled Jame-o. Whiskey equals frisky.

Kid Creole at Solomon & Kuff

Kid Creole at Solomon & Kuff

It’s a “rum hall,” so expect rum. Lots of rum, up to 100 types which are used by renowned mixologist and restaurant co-owner, Karl Franz Williams for curating the best cocktails including this one with Blackwell Rum, sweet potato juice and Angostura bitters. No worries: they offer a smaller-scale wine and craft beer selections too. Stroll along Hudson River Park after (if the temp permits), or wait for the nightly DJ tunes to play.

Hot Wine Cocktails at Ootoya

Hot Red Wine at Ootoya

High-end Tokyo izakaya chain, Ootoya is warming things up this season with its wine selection by combining tea, sake and juice into four different cocktails. Each choice of cocktail – hot red wine with orange juice and cinnamon powder, hot yuzu with chamomile tea and sake, hot ginkobai with chamomile tea and plum sake or hot white wine with honey ginger – pairs nicely with Japanese home cooking faves like yakitori, soba and hot pots.

Jack-O Traveler at Maxwell’s Central Park

Jack-O-Traveler Pumpkin Shandy

Although this buzzy gastropub-eatery is known for its craft cocktails, we recommend grabbing a seasonal shandy brew – made with real pumpkin and delicious autumn spices – and chilling on the outdoor patio to witness fall happen in Central Park just one block away.

Dapper Punch at Red Rooster Harlem

Dapper Punch Red Rooster Harlem

#1 Rule: Pre- or post- Apollo Theater drinks should always be at Red Rooster, especially when they are created by award-winning, celeb chef Marcus Samuelsson. Sip this drink with Glenmorangie, Kronan Swedish Punch, Genepy de Alpes and fresh lemon juice at the lively, always-packed bar or at Ginny’s Supper Club, the speakeasy-esque live music lounge located beneath the stylish eatery.
