Pine Cocktails? We’re into it.

As each annual festive season brings an abundance of delicious cocktails made with cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin, some of New York City’s most revered bartenders are bringing one of the most seasonal yet overlooked ingredients to the forefront; introducing creative ways of using pine in cocktails.


Using house-made syrups, fir garnishes and different variations of the evergreen coniferous tree, Jim Kearns of Slowly Shirley, Nico de Soto of Miracle’s global holiday popups and Cody Goldstein of NYLO hotel’s Shakespeare-inspired woodland dreamscape bar LOCL, provoke nostalgic memories of wintry walks and create the woody scent of fresh air through their unique and aromatic pine cocktails.
