Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3!

Have you ever craved hot chocolate on a summer day? Probably not right? Okay but what if it was frozen? Sounds a little better doesn’t it? Serendipity 3 has taken our normal winter time treat to a different level and created a frozen hot chocolate that is absolutely refreshing and divine. For $8.95 you can indulge in the sweet joys of winter time during the summer with their frozen hot chocolate. The drink is huge, it is perfect for 2 and it is topped with delicious whipped cream and chocolate shavings. There are other frozen delicious choices on the menu as well such as Frozen Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate and Frozen Expresso.

What else is so special about Serendipity 3 you ask? Well they also serve a large menu of all kinds of foods and desserts. Let me actually just point out that the menu is huge, meaning look at your arm, the menu is about the size of your entire arm. It opens like a huge story book. But hey like they say “the bigger the better.” Anyway, I didn’t eat much at my first experience. I really just went for the frozen hot chocolate but I will return to try the desserts.

Also, Serendipity 3 is the cutest restaurant with all types of decorations and collectors items. It is like a coffee shop, mixed with an ice cream parlor, mixed with a restaurant. I can’t quite explain it but the best way to find out is to check it out for yourself!

Cheers To 5 Of The Coolest Drinks In NYC!

Everyone raise your glass and let’s cheers to the summer time and to some of the coolest drinks in NYC! Whether you are a tequila, rum, dark or vodka drinker, this list is for you. It was hard for me to narrow down to just 5. I wanted to add Brother Jimmy’s with their famous fish bowls filled with a million straws and rubber alligator and Dallas BBQ‘s with their well known texas sized drinks but I thought hey we know about those already. So I’ve composed some of the coolest drinks that I think you may not have tried yet. If you have already, then I’m sure you will agree that others need to try them as well.

1. Loopy Doopy at the Conrad Hotel

Located in the Conrad Hotel is the Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar. Their famous drink is Prosecco and Ice Pops served in a large wine glass for $19. I had the Strawberry Margarita. The ice pop alone was absolutely amazing! It has actual strawberries in the ice pop and when dipped in Prosecco, the result is everything you need to enhance your rooftop experience.

 

2. Punch at 67 Orange

This coolest drink is not just for you, it’s for your friends as well. So call up at least 3 of your friends because you’re going to need them to help you finish this big bowl of punch at 67 Orange Street in Harlem. For $48 this punch serves 4 to 6 people. The Caribbean Punch shown below is a mix of everything that will have your hips swaying and wining while laughing and joking with your friends.

3. Goblets at Sugar Factory

If you have not been to the candy and food factory that is Sugar Factory in the Meatpacking District of NYC then you are very much behind the times. But let me catch you up to speed, you want to dine at Sugar Factory and indulge in their huge candy filled goblets. The goblets are $36 and can be shared with a friend. I would suggest choosing the goblet that best fulfills your candy and alcohol preference. Also, the most exciting part about the goblets is that they are filled with dry and regular ice so when filled with your chosen alcohol mix, they fiz, sizzle and smoke. Trust me, I’m sure it’s something you’ve never experienced before.

 

4. Cinco Sampler at Cozymel’s

Raise your hand if the hardest thing to do while you’re at a restaurant is to choose what drink to order. Don’t you wish sometimes you can taste them all, or at least see a picture of what it looks like? Well luckily at Cozymel’s in Westbury, you can taste them all with the Cinco Sampler. For $10 you are able to have Primo, Mango, Raz Rita, Blue Peach and Clásico mini sized tequila filled frozen margaritas. Now the hardest question to answer is “which one is your favorite?”

 

5. Flavored Margaritas at El Patron

Margaritas with Patron at El Patron. If you haven’t read my post on this drink yet, then you are a little behind. But that’s okay, I’m giving you another chance. You must try your favorite flavored margarita in an actual Patron bottle at El Patron. I mean the drink tastes great and it’s in a Patron bottle, what more is there for me to tell you besides Drink Up!
