Cheers to the festive season in Westchester with this creamy cold brew cocktail — and don’t forget the pumpkin-spiced whipped cream on top.
Thanksgiving Eve is traditionally a big night out at the bar, but not so much this year with pandemic restrictions in place. However, since there’s no rule against home-based holiday debauchery (with no more than 10 of your closest friends and relations), Westchester Magazine has obtained an exclusive fall-themed cocktail recipe from The Blind Pig of Westchester, the hip, speakeasy-style bar in White Plains, where Ireland’s meticulous mixologists Daniel Cahill and James Brennan craft original, inventive cocktails with finely curated ingredients and laser-focused attention to detail. Just for the season, the local hotspot shares its special cold brew cocktail recipe that’s all about cozy fall flavors like cinnamon and pumpkin spice. So, bottom’s up, cheers, and happy Thanksgiving!
