Some Last Minute Holiday Ideas

There's only a few more hours to celebrate so here's a couple ideas to keep the holiday spirit alive:

Sip an Eggnog at The Nomad

The white frothy head is so thick it sits like a big marshmallow cloud on top a nutty concoction of bourbon, rum, cognac and scotch before getting finished off with a dusting of fresh cinnamon.  It's a little boozy, a little's everything an eggnog should be.

Enjoy this at the long bar up front or head to the back room for a true holiday experience in the library. 

Take a Trip to Lanterns Keep

This tiny bar tucked into the back of The Iroquois Hotel is a bit of a Midtown secret.  It has an old school speakeasy feel and boasts a number of classic cocktails along with a few creative twists on some old favorites.  
We visited last week and while the fireplace was barely at a flicker, the cozy low light spot still exuded a special holiday charm.

The Daisy de Santiago was quite charming as well made from White Rum, Yellow Chartreuse and Lime.  Call ahead to make a reservation as spots fill up quick.

Stay Home and Drink Some Bubbly!

It is New Years Eve after all...there's no better time to pop open something great and this Asolo Prosecco Superiore produced by the Montelvini Winery is an excellent choice.

The wine has a straw-yellow color with lots of tight bubbles and flecks of gold.  The smell is big and fruity with strong minerality and crisp flavors of melon and lime. It's prefect for a celebration at home being it with friends, family or alone!  This gorgeous bottle just recently became available in NYC so look around for it at Italian wine stores like Eataly.  Cheers!
