Cocktail Recipe


The W&S crew combed New York City to find our NYC50, the best places to eat and drink right now. This year, BlackTail made the list for their unmatched cocktail program. 

Head down to Pier A Harbor House to enjoy American fare with a Cuban flair and drink through their menu of highballs, punches, sours, old-fashioneds, and cocktails—each category marked by an iconic glass style. To end the evening, Bar Manager Jesse Vida recommends the Alexander. “A modern adaptation on a Brandy Alexander,” he says. “It has layers of dried fruit flavors— it’s creamy, complex, and a perfect night cap.”
