Winter has come once again to Serafina and Cicchetti as we celebrate crisp windblown evenings, a bountiful harvest from Fall, and the coming together of friends and family. We have crafted a fine selection of cold weather cocktails for you to enjoy and complement the flavors of the season, some of the new selections include: The Graffiatura Vecchia, designed for the lover of a classic Old Fashioned, with our house made bitter orange whisky and 12 year bourbon is noble and refined. For cold nights we offer Mele Calde, a hot toddy made with our house infused apple bourbon mixed with the opulent aromatics of Carpano Antica and orange oils. And the Arrossire Fresco using Lillet and Nonino Amaro, it evokes memories of early dusks and the aroma of fireplaces; it is a perfect seasonal aperitif. These new seasonal libations are designed to highlight flavors and nuances of winter, pairing easily with the selections from Chef Dylan’s fall/winter menu. The Vesper di Pesca, a delicious and dry expression of our house infused heirloom peach vodka, compliments the roasted pumpkin ravioli, Mezzaluna di Zucca, perfectly. Or the crisp Serafina Magia, a clean and effervescent cocktail enlivened by sage and Campari pairs beautifully with the Grilled pork chop with turnip and fontina gratin. If you haven’t already, please join us for our Saturday afternoon cocktail tastings at Cicchetti; learn how to craft fine cocktails in your own home just as we do here at Serafina. We just finished the Iron Bartender event where four of our mixologists squared off in crafting the best cocktail with a secret ingredient and paired it with the chef ’s selected antipasti. Check the Serafina website for details. We hope we see you soon, and look forward to fulfilling your cocktail desires.
