Those looking for a warming seasonal beverage have an array of dazzling hand-crafted cocktails to choose from with mixologist Slava Borisov’s new fall cocktail collection. The perfect fall-winter treat, Crystal Milk Punch ($17) is a silky, clarified milk punch abundant with aromas of orchard fruit, forest, and winter spice. This rich cocktail is made with steeped apple pie blend, masala chai, pear tree, and lapsang souchong tea, and combined with sugar, Rum Zacapa, Cruzan Blackstrap Rum, Atlantico Rum, Port Graham’s 10, and lemon juice. The drink is then garnished with a remarkable skeleton magnolia leaf and an anise star. The Pickled Smith ($18) is a lovely fall cocktail showcasing the richer notes of both Old Tom Gin and Genever with the backbone flavor of Travelle’s fall syrup, which is made with bergamot orange peel, freeze dried fuji apple, pink peppercorns, and star anise. Old Tom Gin, a sweeter, less botanical gin, is combined with Bols Genever, the fall syrup, verjus, and three dashes of pine bitter, to create a seasonal beverage for the gin martini drinker. The cocktail is garnished with a pickled apple and micro sorrel leaf. Additionally, Borisov’s new fall cocktail collection features the elegant and refreshing Northern Pearl ($17), an ode to the first snowflakes of the season, that is made with Grey Goose, Mead wine, fall syrup, lemon juice, grapefruit bitters and egg white; the Ainorra ($19), the perfect alternative for the Manhattan lover, made with Aronia Rye Whiskey, Pimento Dram, Cherry Herring, and verjus, garnished with lemon swatch and fortified Aronia berries; as well as the complex Winter Highball ($15), made with Toki, Merlot Juice, fig vinegar, Oloroso Sherry, and soda water, and garnished with a Shiso leaf and frozen grape
