Whichever team you fall on (I play both sides cuz I'm crazy like that) - these classic brunch drinks are great because you can be as basic or creative as you want. And they pretty much taste good no matter what. The kickoff party for the crawl was at Coco and they were on top of their cocktail game with delicious mimosas in pretty glasses and a tricked-out DIY bloody mary bar. The space itself is amazing (as is the food), so you'll have to go for yourself. In the meantime I got the rundown on how to recreate these signature cocktails.

Besides having a grand piano and amazing food, Manhattan Inn just revamped their summer drink menu, which obviously calls for a cheers!
I got the details on my two faves, 'The Casewll' and 'Herbal Remedy'.

There's nothing more summery then sitting outside eating as many oysters as you possibly can. But what to drink?!
I know zero about pairings, luckily Dave at the Diamond filled me in on some good options and now I'm ready to drop some major knowledge on future dining companions.
