Celebrate the new year with this month’s winning cocktail!
Each month, Mohonk bartenders compete to create a specialty craft cocktail for the resort. A select group of lucky Mohonk employees get to taste, discuss, and vote on the winning “Cocktail of the Month,” which can be enjoyed by guests in the Carriage Lounge among a variety of hyper-local draft beers and New York spirits.
The New Year should always be celebrated in the spirit of
extravagance and what better way to indulge than with bubbly? This
Preakness inspired cocktail takes its name from Triple Crown winner
and sire of champions, American Pharaoh. Peach, local bourbon,
champagne, and fresh mint mingle while you check the odds. May it
bring you luck across the board!
