Our biggest events of the year are the annual Uncorked and Good Beer, two massive tastings that focus on locally made wines and the region’s best craft beers and breweries, as well as the foods that go with them. But we don’t want to give local distillers and liquor importers short shrift, and that’s why we put together a series of smaller cocktail-centered fests called Good Spirits. Our next is slated for the start of next year, and it’s still in the early planning stages.
Will it be focused on traditional cocktails made with modern spirits? Your Manhattans and Brooklyns and Martinis? Will it be a chance for a budding group of mixologists to show off their new creations?
We’re not sure, but we wanted to get our creative juices flowing by asking you what’s your favorite thing to drink right now. A local rye on the rocks? A hot toddy with pear bitters at Bourbon & Branch? Your own creation with roasted beets and Brooklyn gin? Let us know here in the comments and you could win tickets for two to our first cocktail pairing party early next year. Extra points for Manhattan-made ingredients, seasonality and of course, a great story.
