New Classic Drinks
Snug Harbor Smash
Want a taste of summer? Head to Island Creek Oyster Bar for this unbeatably refreshing libation crafted of crushed lime, demerara sugar, and a blend of four rums. Served over crushed ice and topped with a mint sprig, it’s great paired with a plate of briny bivalves.
Biting yet aromatic, this whiskey cocktail from the Citizen Public House and Oyster Bar is made with Jameson’s, Carpano Antica vermouth, Maraschino liqueur, fresh lemon juice, and bitters, and served straight up.
Created by Drink bar manager John Gertsen, this rye-based cocktail — named for the bar’s up-and-coming locale — gets its sweet complexity from Benedictine herbal liqueur and Punt e Mes Italian vermouth.
