Below are some craft cocktails from Crop & Kettle that will warm your heart and soul when the temperatures begin to drop.
Red Moon Over LI
If you’re heading to the crypts of the coliseum for terrifying thrills and chills at Blood Manor, be sure to stop by Crop & Kettle to try their Red Moon Over LI cocktail made with Chianti red wine, blackberry simple syrup and Rye Whiskey, poured over a spherical ice cube. You’ll be howling at the moon after this tasty blood-red cocktail.
Rum Punch for Two
Rum Punch for two is made with cider from Riverhead Cider House, oranges, and berry hibiscus, then it’s cold steeped in a French press coffee maker. Next, three ounces of Angostura Caribbean Rum that is aged for 7 years and gingerade is added. The hue of the rum punch and its flavor profile changes over time the more it’s pressed, giving it a deeper color and bright notes of citrus and hibiscus.
Plan a date night to drink and dine at Crop & Kettle and enjoy Rum Punch sharable for two for just $20.
A Hot Toddy is the ultimate winter warmer for bone-chilling winter nights. At Crop & Kettle, the Hot Toddy is made with local bourbon from Rough Rider Straight Bourbon Whiskey, lemons, oranges, honey and a special blend of tea with star anise, cloves and cinnamon, warmed in a coffee siphon. The liquid in the bottom chamber of the coffee siphon is forced up into the upper chamber when it’s heated, causing the Hot Toddy to infuse citrus and seasonal spice. Banish the winter blues and warm up by the Long Island Marriot fireplace with a Crop & Kettle Hot Toddy.
