One of my favorite Williamsburg restaurants, Sunday in Brooklyn, is hosting a pop-up bar within the restaurant called Snowday in Brooklyn. Snuggled in the back bar of the restaurant is this innovative space that would make any hygge snow bunny lover swoon! Each of the menus are adorable little books filled with themed craft cocktails. It was hard to pick which one to start with.
My date started with the Czech Point: bourbon, aged cachaca, Czech spices, sweet vermouth, maple, and angostura bitters. A wintery take on the Manhattan.
I went a little bit more fruity and fun with the Flock of Snowbirds: barley shochu, capari, coconut, pineapple, line, and coffee bean. It tasted as beautiful as it looked!
Cocktail hour wouldn’t be complete without some bar snacks. We started out with the winter peanuts which were coated in a thick layer of sumac, black pepper, and cayenne. They were a savory, spicy companion to our drinks.
For round two, I went with a bit more tropical with the Dude, Where’s my Sled?, which was a concoction of pineapple rum, poblano pepper, nutmeg, lime, and tiki bitters. Served on pebble ice (aka the best kind of ice), this drink was a delight.
My partner in crime tried the Moon-Watcher: blended Scotch, Madeira wine, allspiace, banana, and spiced cranberry bitters. This was a potent take on a Rob Roy.
And what better to serve with craft cocktails than cheese? That’s right, they have a Raclette dish where the server melts the cheese over potatoes, pickled chilies, bacon, and sour cream. So much hot cheese! This decadent dish was over the top deliciousness.
Snowday will be running at Sunday in Brookyln through February. I would recommend a reservation.
