Time for Fall Cocktails

fall-cocktail-recipe-chowhound-670x446Autumn/ Winter Cocktails from Jersey City’s Piggyback Bar and NYC’s Pig and Khao

As we pack start to pack away our summer essentials  and pull out the sweaters and boots, it’s also time to switch up the bar cart and replace those fruity, light flavors with deeper, warmer profiles. Ben Byruch, operations manager and beverage curator of Jersey City’s Piggyback Bar and NYC’s Pig and Khao, has put together cocktails that showcase these warm and seasonal flavors.

We would love for you to consider their cocktails in any fall cocktail recipe roundups you may be working on.

  • Stinky Peat – A fan favorite at Pig and Khao, the cocktail is an infusion of chamomile rye and elderflower, providing a pleasant, flowery taste cut with a subtle, smoky bite from a scotch rinse.
  • Winter Root – This creation is ideal for the fall/winter months and offers spicier notes from its base of ginger whiskey and the signature, housemade five spice blend syrup featuring hints of clove, anise, all spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Topped with a quick dash of Peychaud’s bitters, the cocktail is truly fall in a glass.

Park View Academy, an innovative new daycare facility, has signed a lease to open its first location at Vantage, the luxury high-rise rental building in downtown Jersey City, N.J.’s Liberty Harbor North neighborhood.

Slated to open in Early 2019, the new early childhood school will serve both residents of Vantage and the community-at-large, according to Fisher Development Associates, which is developing the 448-home waterfront building overlooking the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Harbor Marina.

Park View Academy’s mission is to create a safe, educational, and friendly environment for the children under their care. They believe every child is unique and their growth depends on patience, understanding encouragement, and lots of love! Every day will bring a new and exciting challenge for your little one to experience. The center is the first collaboration between two local veterans of Hudson County child care, partners Yeon Benkovitz, owner of Lucie Goosie Toddler Enrichment in Jersey City, and Diane Branco, owner of World of Wonder daycare center (WOW) and Wowkids, LLC in Hoboken, NJ.

“It’s no secret Jersey City’s demographic is shifting to include more and more young families and there’s a growing need for high quality child care services,” Mrs. Benkovitz says.  “We’re establishing Park View Academy to help fill this demand.  We hope to offer parents a valuable service in a state-of-the-art facility that draws on the expertise of not only two local child care professionals, but also two experienced Jersey City moms.”

Vantage Building Rendering (1)Park View Academy will occupy approximately 4,600 square feet of ground floor retail space at Vantage.  The facility will feature a large play area to strongly encourage a high level of child interaction.

“We searched neighborhoods in downtown Jersey City for nearly three years trying to find the right location,” Mrs. Benkovitz adds.  “We were fortunate Vantage was brought to market by Fisher Development Associates and chose the building for our debut facility because the space is beautiful.  We also love the neighborhood feel and its location near the light rail and right off Marin Boulevard makes its accessible for parents.”

The 45-story Vantage boasts approximately 5,000 square-feet of supportive retail space.  The LEED-certified building at 33 Park View Avenue has been an important ingredient in Liberty Harbor North’s growth into a 21st Century urban destination where inspired living spaces blend with community services and shops to create a vibrant live-work environment for today’s urban professional.
