Just because July 4th has come and gone doesn’t mean we should stop celebrating this great country of ours. Now through July 15th, The Rickey in NYC – an intimate craft cocktail lounge at the Dream Midtown hotel – is serving up a Red, White & Blue whiskey flight and a food pairing flights for $17.76 each, natch.
“We’re extremely proud to run an extensive wine and spirits program at The Rickey year-round but it would be the perfect opportunity to showcase some of our unique American offerings,” explains Matt Strauss, The Rickey owner and wine curator, adding that they are paying homage to America “with some delicious food pairings with a twist on American classics all at an attractive and patriotic price point.”
The Red, White & Blue whiskey tasting flight features a glass of Prisoner Red Blend, a glass of White Lioco Chardonnay and Balcones Blue Corn Whiskey, while the bite flight is made up of Filet Mignon Skewer, a Fruit & Cheese Skewer and Chocolate-Dipped Blueberries Skewer
“The Prisoner red blend features a bold and flavorful taste that signifies the greatness of American wines, Lioco Chardonnay that was perfected in an alley behind a famed Los Angeles restaurant by a sommelier in effort to create great wines in USA for high end restaurants, finished off with Balcones Blue Corn Whiskey which was the first Texas whiskey released on the market since prohibition,” add Strauss.
Make sure to go now – the tasting flight special only runs until the beginning of next week.
