Classic Cocktails: Recipes for Fall

Classic Cocktails: Recipes for Fall

What's a cocktail without a story behind it? Yana Volfson - beverage director for Lower East Side restaurant Peels - has curated a few perfect fall cocktail recipes for us. The first being The New York Shrub, a classic drink which was most popular in America's colonial era. It's bound to warm you up as fall fast approaches, and perhaps will transport you to a different era. The second (and our personal favorite) is the Peels Punch. It's a drink that brings us back to parties, proms, and young boys with flasks stealthily held above the communal punch bowl at the Homecoming dance. We know it's mushy, but every Monday could use a little nostalgia...and a great cocktail. Recipes below!
