NYC’s Skylark Delivers An Autumnal Take On A New Orleans Classic

Cinnamon Sazerac

Say what you like about Times Square, from 30 stories up its pure spectacle. That’s the perspective The Skylark delivers. The swank NYC lounge mixes old school elegance with modern luxury, masterfully appointed interiors look through floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the surrounding skyline. A private rooftop and various terraces add an additional sense of exclusivity. This sense of classic modernity also translates to the cocktail menu, where old favorites are given a new twist, such as with the Cinnamon Sazerac

Created by Master Mixologist Johnny Swet the Cinnamon Sazerac embodies The Skylark’s ethos. A touch of spice adds something extra to the New Orleans, adding a bit of flair without overwhelming the cocktail. Check out the recipe below:
