Leave Rochelle Out of It
There’s something about whiskey on Christmas, and if you’re spending Christmas in New York City, you’re in luck. Commonly referred to as just Rochelle’s, this Lower East Side hang out has over 120 whiskeys available, not to mention their signature whiskey cocktails that are perfect to drink alone under the mistletoe.
