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.
