Sometimes Hump Day calls for a true cocktail experience. If you’re looking for deliciously crafted, high-quality cocktails, few places in New York are better than Silver Lining. The Tribeca cocktail bar likes to keep its focus on the classics–your martinis, your Manhattans. We celebrated our Hump Day this week with some delicious takes on a couple of great classics.
The Pan American Clipper has lime, grenadine and Applejack served up in an Absinthe-rinsed coupe. (Hear all those fancy words?)
Our next adult beverage was the Prescription Julep–rye, cognac, Jamican rum, mint and sugar over crushed ice. Both drinks were great and had more than a bit of a kick…if you’re into that kind of thing. (We’re very into that kind of thing.)
If you’re on the indecisive side or want to be a bit adventurous, just tell the Silver Lining bartenders what you like–type of spirit, sweet or spicy, etc–and they’ll mix up some specific to your taste.
Oh yes, we have a special guest appearance this week from our friend Resham! She is turning her love of chai into a book about the chai wallahs of India. In the meantime, you can check out her great blog and follow her on Twitter for great chai and tea related news and tips.
We hope you guys are getting bottled on this lovely Hump Day and make sure to schedule a trip down to Silver Lining. It’ll be more than worth it. Happy Hump Day!
