Brunch at Hundred Acres began with deep Sunday craving for a good Bloody Mary in the Greenwich Village area. Passing by the joint, I checked out the menu and saw that there were that they have a variety of 5 different offerings; I was intrigued and sold. Commence the boozy brunch!
I started with the Creole Bloody which is their version of the classic with celery, lemon, Wodka vodka, a house whole grain mustard and pickle accompaniment, which can be order as a single drink or in a pitcher. It was spicy and savory, a good start to any brunch meal. The drink was delivered to me by and adorable dancing waiter and ex-choreographer / bartender, Micah, who treated me his best Janet Jackson control neck moves. I immediately realized I was in the midst of a true ThirstyNYC-er and asked him to suggest the best way to get my brunch buzz on.
It was certainly the right move because he has a signature drink named after him which was obviously my need libation. The Micah’s Mocha : espresso, Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Kahlua and the milk of your choosing. Micah gives it his own special twist that he says makes it “on point” adding a little house maple syrup instead of agave to sweeten it up.
Seeing that I wasn’t done yet, the next recommendation was an off the menu mezcal cocktail called the Smoked Maple with more of Micah’s secret syrup ingredient – Lagavulin whiskey-lined glass, mezcal, lime and maple syrup.
Their latest additions to the drinks program are their new house cask cocktails specially constructed to elevate classic whiskey, rye and bourbon drinks. I was fortunate enough to try the Bobby Roy and Negroni and unfortunately for my wallet and liver, I am now hooked on Hundred Acres brunch drinks!
