Each day from Dec. 12 – Dec. 23, bartender Peter Hill of Park 75 Lounge will introduce a new festive cocktail to get you in the holiday spirit. From ‘The North Pole’ to ‘A Miracle on 14th Street,’ each cocktail has been crafted to highlight the best of the season’s flavors and will be specially priced at $12.
Day 1: On the First Day of Cocktails Park 75 will offer ‘A Partridge in a Pear Tea!’ The drink features Cruzan Rum, baked pear juice, lemon juice and Housemade Wormwood Bitters, garnished with a baked pear slice.
Day 2: Park 75 will lure you in with ‘Santa’s Sauce.’ The combination of Bulleit bourbon, Chai tea, cardamom syrup and cinnamon will have you ready to face more shopping.
Day 3: You’ll be transported to ‘The North Pole’ — via Moscow when you sip on this variation of a Moscow Mule, complete with Tito’s vodka, peppermint syrup and Housemade Ginger Beer.
Day 4: Does mall traffic have you feeling a little grumpy? Sit back and enjoy ‘The Grinch.’ Scotch, port and Aperol are sure to renew that holiday spirit.
Day 5: Of course, Park 75 will offer up ‘Five Golden Rings!’ First, a brown sugar cube is muddled with sage leaves, then Cruzan rum, AppleJack apple brandy and lime juice are added to the mix. Finally, the beverage is shaken, strained and served!
Day 6:The ‘Peppermint Patty’ is the cocktail of choice. Housemade Chicory Liqueur, espresso and peppermint syrup, along with Bulleit bourbon make up this adults-only treat.
Day 7: Enter into the ‘Winter Wonderland.’ Equal parts Chartreuse, Luxardo liqueur, Fernet Branca and lime juice are combined with just a touch of Mezcal for a slightly smoky yet tart libation.
Day 8: Need a little extra cheer to get through yet another rendition of ‘Oh Christmas Tree?’ The herbaceous flavors of Benedictine, Absinthe, Hum liqueur, Housemade Fall Spice Syrup and cracked orange peel will revive you for another round of carols!
Day 9: Don’t go all the way to 34th Street! Stop by Park 75 Lounge at 75 14th Street for the ‘Miracle on 14th Street.’ This cocktail combines Grand Marnier with Cynar, Hum liqueur, Dry Vermouth and Housemade Cucumber Honeycomb Bitters for a wonderfully festive caramel and orange spice flavored drink.
Day 10: You’ll find your new party favorite. Park 75’s ‘Christmas Rum Punch’ features Pampero rum, Applejack apple brandy, Housemade Orange Liqueur and Cinnamon Bitters with a touch of brown sugar.
Day 11: Let ‘Rudolph’ light the way. Tito’s vodka, Housemade Orange Liqueur, beet syrup and a rose water tincture ‘guide’ this cocktail.
Finally, on the 12th day of Cocktails, Park 75 will wish you ‘Feliz Navidad!’ Get festive with tequila, Mexican chocolate and Fernet Branca. A splash of cream, brown sugar cube and simple syrup make this drink the perfect grand finale to the 12 Days of Cocktails.
