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!

Outdoor Fitness is Always Fun!

Imagine being outdoors amongst 200 people inhaling fresh air and exhaling stress while stretching your muscles to make your body feel amazing. Bryant Park Yoga is one of the most relaxing things I like to do during the summer. It’s an activity that I’ve been doing for years. Each year Bryant Park provides free yoga classes each and every week. The mats are provided free and various instructors spend an hour of their time coaching you in various yoga poses, breathing and meditating exercises. I’ve also decided to include some other free outdoor yoga and fitness classes. They are the perfect way to power down from a stressful day or week and hey…it’s free!
