Red and Blue Nutcracker Cocktails
The nutcracker is to New York City's beaches and parks what the chopped cheese is to our delis — totally ubiquitous and a guilty pleasure that never disappoints. Charismatic “beachtenders” hawk these colorful and boozy concoctions all summer long anywhere crowds gather. I can’t compete with these all-stars on their turf, so I hunkered down behind the bar to come up with these love letters to these NYC icons.
