(917) 656-6788

This new upstairs cocktail den by Joaquin Simo and friends currently has a delightful hot cocktail that allows drinkers to choose their specific liquor. With pear brandy it comes off as the best hot cider around, and with mezcal it's something altogether more complex.

New York, NY 10003
(212) 254-3500
Visit Website

The First Date, a relative newcomer to the menu at Dave Arnold's way-forward-thinking bar at Momofuku Ssam, is solidly reminiscent of an old-fashioned but, with bourbon, dates, and bitters, it's a warming concoction for a chilly late autumn, early winter night out.

10. The Crabhattan at Crave Fishbar

Copy Link
945 2nd Ave.
New York, NY 10022
(646) 895-9585
Visit Website

Crave Fishbar has a play on the Manhattan called—wait for it (or don't because it's in the headline of this section)—the Crabhattan. The Manhattan's already a good winter drink—strong and bitter and warming—but this one is made with rye, apple cider, Amaro, vermouth, and bitters, making it extra wintry.

11. Rum & Raisin at Saxon + Parole

Visit Website

AvroKO's Saxon + Parole has a new winter cocktail called the Rum & Raisin, made with rum, Licor 43 (a Spanish vanilla and citrus liqueur), spiced honey syrup, and ground cinnamon. It also has a little Greek yoghurt in there for consistency but don't let that freak you out.
