Drink DuJour : Meet Marcy’s Maker

by Natasha Wolff | August 30, 2013 12:00 am

It only takes a matter of minutes to mix a Meet Marcy’s Maker, but the drink actually comes together weeks before it’s ever ordered.

“The body of this drink is our house-infused cinnamon-apple-raisin vodka, which we infuse for two weeks before it makes it behind the bar,” Thomas Favorule, bar manager at Olives New York[1] in the W Union Square hotel[2] says. “The Amaro Nonino acts as the balancer, with flavors of caramelized sugar and bitter orange, and the Cocchi Torino is an accent with hints of cocoa nibs and rhubarb.”

That’s not all that goes into the drink, though.

“We finish it off with our roasted peanut bitters, which blends well with the sweetness of the house-infused vodka,” Favorule says. “Drinkers beware: This is a strong drink as it’s all alcohol, but trust that it’s still smooth and refreshing and pleasing to the palate”
