Fall-Themed Drinks Around NYC

Autumn in New York is a magical time of year, between the brisk weather, the changing leaves in Central Park, and the exciting Halloween festivities in the West Village. It’s also a perfect time to sample one of the city’s many delicious drinks, especially those that incorporate seasonal ingredients. We’ve identified the spots serving the very best of these autumnal beverages.

Apple Cider

New York State is an apple capital, with many of its 35,000 farms growing the fruit, and several of these farms prepare popular ciders that are sold in GrowNYC greenmarkets. If you prefer gourmet ciders, you can also visit Midtown food truck Sweetery, Magnolia Bakery, or City Bakery (the last serves a delicious spiced version); for hard ciders, swing by the West Village’s Wilfie & Nell gastropub, tour the Brooklyn Cider House, or attend Cider Week New York. 

Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Although the pumpkin spice latte was the invention of a certain Seattle-based coffee chain, several Manhattan cafés and bars have recently placed their own spin on the drink. Among these are the outposts of home-grown coffee chain Gregorys Coffee, where the signature “night-vision espresso” is paired with pumpkin syrup made in-house. Enjoy it with your choice of oat, almond, soy, or dairy milk, and feel free to add in other autumn-appropriate syrups, like caramel, vanilla, and hazelnut. Cafés such as Kahve (Hell’s Kitchen), City of Saints (East Village), and Grounded (West Village) also serve gourmet variations on the latte.

Autumn Cocktails

Head to cocktail lounges ÇaVa Todd English and Antica Pesa to mix your cider with rum and cinnamon schnapps, or pimento bitters and star anise. Or, if you’re looking to sample other autumn ingredients besides apple cider, try A.Roqa’s mezcal cocktail with chipotle-cinnamon-infused agave; Midtown restaurant Sushi by Bou’s pumpkin-spice sangria; P.S. Kitchen’s whiskey with maple syrup; and Dante NYC’s pisco cocktail with spiced pineapple and nutmeg.
