Ok, another Food Pic of the Week entry that does not involve food.
I know that Settepani has appeared on this blog multiple times during this pandemic. Hey, the restaurant is only a 1-1.5 minute walk from my apt. But, Settepani has finally started its fall menu, which (more importantly) includes brand new fall cocktails.
First up, we have the Forbidden Fruit – a combination of Hendricks Gin, apple cider sorbet, and ginger beer. I’ll give this one an 8 out 10 ten, because I wish the cocktail had a bit more gin in it (shocking). Perhaps, next time, I just ask for the gin and apple sorbet for this cocktail. I gotta say that it probably was not a wise choice to order this beverage while dining outside in 52F weather.
Next up, we have the Zucca Ferro (Pumpkin Iron), which has pumpkin, whiskey, lemon juice, and Harlem American Syrup. Since I’m not a fan of too much sweetness in my adult cocktails, I requested the drink without the syrup. Don’t nobody need all that sugar getting in the way of his whiskey. 😉 This one gets a 9 out of 10.
Now that I think about it. Since one of the cocktails contained sorbet, I guess this post did have food in it after all.
