Our In-Hotel Restaurant Featured in CBS New York
Featured in CBS New York’s ‘Best Over-The-Top Cocktails in NY’ by Carly Petrone
Here at Executive Hotel Le Soleil New York, we were proud to hear that Trademark Taste + Grind (the epic restaurant located conveniently within our hotel) had been featured in Carly Petrone’s articles about over-the-top cocktails in the heart of New York City – just another great reason to come visit us!
Here is an excerpt:
You’ll never believe how much time and patience goes into creating the Barrel-Aged Cosmopolitan over at Trademark Taste + Grind. Cocktail Curator Will Benedetto has taken barrel-aged cocktails to a whole other level by dumping 3 liters of Botanist gin into a container and letting it sit for a few days with two pounds of dried cranberries. He then strains off the cranberries, mixes in a touch of Cointreau, and pours the whole thing into a lightly charred new American Oak barrel, where it sits for a few weeks. Lastly, the base is poured into airtight containers and stored. All you have to do is order up a glass and the bartender will pour 2.75 ounces of the barrel aged cosmo base into a shaker tin with a bit of lime (.75 ounces to be exact). After being shaken and strained into a chilled coup glass, it’s garnished with a dehydrated lime wheel and ready for consumption. Phew! Now that’s a handcrafted cocktail!
