3 Cocktails to Enjoy Before Summer Ends

Stay cool with these tasty beverages from SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza, The Oliver and Bar Rosso.

SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza

Alcoholic root beer’s popularity is on the rise, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that adults-only root beer floats are following closely behind. SPIN! is serving up three versions through the end of August. Choose from Not Your Father’s Root Beer, Coney Island Orange Cream Ale and Best Damn Cherry Cola, then your hard soda will be poured over a scoop of Tahitian vanilla gelato or another flavor of your choice. (Younger patrons can get their float on sans liquor with any fountain soda, root beer or Izze sodas.)

The Oliver

Step aside, wine and beer—there’s a slew of new bottled beverages making tableside appearances at The Oliver. The restaurant offers house-bottled still and carbonated refreshments. Especially well suited to summer sipping are the Pinwheel, made with Lillet rose, fino sherry and watermelon-mint tea, and Summer Babe, a mix of vodka, strawberry, Dolin Blanc and lavender bitters.

Bar Rosso at Hotel Sorella

What’s so special about a popsicle? Nothing. But there’s something very special about Bar Rosso’s poptails, an adult update on push-pops. The novel, fruity frozen cocktails are available through Labor Day, and they’re extra appealing when enjoyed alongside the hotel’s rooftop pool.
