From showstopping glassware to pyrotechnics, these unique cocktails offer more than just a buzz, but an entire experience.

There is something so pleasing about a cocktail with simplicity. This is the polar opposite of the spectrum—the heart-pounding excitement of a cocktail that goes above and beyond just booze and garnish. These unique cocktails will wow and excite, guaranteed.

Augustine’s Saulmeria

213 Halsted Ave, Mamaroneck; 914.810.6896

The childhood nostalgia of rock candy is paired with an adult beverage for this easy-on-the-eyes sip of lavender. Aptly named the “Fairy Godmother,” this swirl of butterfly pea-infused tequila plays with the acidity of the lime and the heat of the habanero, making that rock candy an even more practical choice. Just don’t get too bibbity-bobbity-booped.

Barquila Tapas Cocktail Lounge

308 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck; 914.315.1388

Bursting with life and neon, Barquila’s cocktail program is exceptionally on brand. Between the Bitcoin Treasure Box (a tropical-themed drink that comes in an actual treasure chest) and Smoke on the London Roaster (a smooth coffee cocktail that’s presented in the iconic red telephone booth), you won’t be at a loss for oohs and ahhs.

The Blind Pig

174 Martine Ave, White Plains; 914.607.2687

The Piggy Colada, served in a young coconut for extra aesthetic, is going to be your new favorite summer drink (and Instagram profile pic). Aged rum, Ron Zacapa, Diplomatico, Velvet Falernum, pineapple, lime, toasted coconut mix and mingle for the perfect poolside sip (minus the pool, of course).

Bona Bona Ice Cream

10 Westchester Ave, Port Chester; 914.481.5712

Here’s the question on everyone’s minds: is it a milkshake with booze in it or a cocktail with ice cream in it? Either way you spin it, the lineup of drinks is ridiculous—salted caramel bourbon, espresso martini, the list and flavors go on. Now, when the kids are begging for ice cream, it’s all the more easy to agree.

Bowlero White Plains

47 Tarrytown Rd, White Plains; 914.948.2677

Yes, we understand that this is a bowling alley, but do you understand that the 123 oz “Dunk Tank” is the poster child for cocktail craziness? Bacardi Black, Bacardi Coconut, Bacardi Silver, BOLS Amaretto, and pineapple juice make up this absolute behemoth, shared between four people with silly straws for extra whimsy. And maybe just maybe it’ll make you better at bowling.

Greca Mediterranean Kitchen + Grill

189 Main St, White Plains; 914.448.8800

A brunch with fancy booze is a brunch we’d like to be a part of. Consider this Bloody Mary laden with jumbo shrimp, olives, and imported feta just as much of your meal as the bacon and potatoes.

Jay Street Café

63 Katonah Ave, Katonah; 914.488.9700

No crystal ball needed to see your future after this drink featuring Empress 1908 gin (spoiler alert, it’s awesome).

The Tasty Table

21 Campwoods Rd, Ossining; 914.762.4000

Presented in the cutest cup, this Pink Drink Mimosa levels up any soiree. Refreshing dragon fruit tangos with champagne for a light and fun drink—and don’t forget the popping lychee pearls at the bottom, just in case you need some extra bubbles in your life.

Town House

559 Main St, New Rochelle; 914.278.9278

Imbibe with Buddha via this speakeasy-style cocktail. Rife with a revamped cocktail menu, Town House keeps patrons on their toes, with a rotating mystery sip out of Buddha each week. Don’t for the accompanying small plate of appetizer specials.

tredici NORTH

578 Anderson Hill Rd, Purchase; 914.997.4113

Smoked right before your eyes, this drink comes with a performance element. The Midnight Manhattan is smoked in a large glass decanter to embed the rich flavor profile into the drink, and then poured out, smoke and all, into the glass in front of you. You’ll never be able to have a regular Manhattan ever again—but it’s worth it.
