Welcome Spring with These Seasonal Cocktails in New York City

by Hannah Warne on Apr 2, 2018 in Roundups

 
Despite some suspect weather, spring is finally here in New York. Warmer temps, sunny skies and blooming buds are soon to come—it’s time to celebrate the only way we know how: with a cocktail.
 
The vintage vibe of this space in Bed-Stuy makes it a quintessential neighborhood spot featuring craft cocktails and brews on tap. Enjoy the quickly improving weather on their outdoor patio, or snag one of the few tables inside. Tiki-inspired drinks on the menu will transport you to warmer weather—try the Penichillin, a concoction of scotch, lemon, honey, ginger and, as the menu says, “extra scotch.”  (1057 Atlantic Ave.) 
Nestled in the heart of the Theatre District, this modern chic restaurant offers all of their signature cocktails in three sizes or a flight of three: the Beehave at 2 oz., the Buzz at 6 oz. and the Sting at 12 oz. For an instant infusion of spring, try The Dalliance—tequila and mezcal shaken with passionfruit juice and honey. For a fruitier take, go with the Getsetter, which features Pavan French Liqueur and aperol with lemon juice, passionfruit sorbet and earl grey-infused vodka fragrance. (300 W. 44th St.; 212-803-4545)

Patent Pending
By day, this spot in the Radio Wave building serves coffees and pastries as Patent Coffee. By night, it’s transformed into Patent Pending, a 34-seat secret cocktail bar that patrons can access by ringing a buzzer and entering a hidden door in the coffee shop. For fruity springtime vibes, try the Strange Magic, a mixture of vodka, strawberry, grapefruit, madeira, lemon, prosecco and seltzer. For something a bit more savory, the Made from Memory with gin, apple brandy, orange liqueur, fig leaf, earl grey tea and cream will do the trick. (29 W. 27th St.; 212-689-4002)
 
At the top of the William Vale hotel in Williamsburg is Westlight, offering a 22nd-floor view of Manhattan and Brooklyn. And while the views alone are worth the trip, so is the curated cocktail menu. The In Bloom will have you dreaming of spring, with beets, cynar, stoli elit vodka, lemon, mint and cava while the Paradise Lost serves up tropical vibes with coconut, curry, amontillado sherry, cashew, orange and pineapple. (111 N. 12th St.; 718-307-7100)

Legacy Records
Operated by the same folks who brought us Pasquale Jones in NoLita, this Hudson Yard’s spot is serving up an assortment of innovative spring cocktails from mixologist Jeff Bell of Please Don’t Tell. On offer are drinks including the Lees Knees with champagne, lemon, honey and Bigallet Thym liqueur or the Pomme Pomme with vodka, Lemorton Pommeau, Bordelet Pomme Perlant and grapefruit. (517 W. 38th St.)
