Drink DuJour: Autumn in Chelsea

Sweater weather calls for this crisp, bourbon-infused beverage

When the air cools and the foliage turns wild shades of red, orange, and yellow, there’s nothing quite like cozying up at home on a Friday night with Netflix and a beverage to match the vibe. You’re probably craving something a little dark, and filled to the brim with the season’s aromatic flavors. It’s time for an Autumn in Chelsea. Served at the The Fleur Room atop Manhattan’s trendy Moxy Chelsea, the signature cocktail puts bourbon and vermouth front and center this season.

Crafted with the bourbon enthusiast’s palette in mind, the Autumn in Chelsea is a spirit-forward drink. It touts a sweetly smooth taste from the Basil Hayden bourbon, which compliments the hint of spice from the Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur. Dashes of black walnut and chocolate bitters provide a rich finish, along with a chocolate truffle garnish to make your mouth extra happy. Hello sweater weather!
