One of Midtown New York’s ’s most intimate cocktail lounges, The Rickey at Dream Midtown has launched two new cocktails for its secret-off-the-menu:The Fearless Agent and Tsetse Fly. These are exclusively visible through the venue’s Instagram page, @therickeyny. To order one, customers simply need to show their bartender that they follow The Rickey at Dream Midtown.
- Fearless Agent ($16) – Absolut Vodka, Lime Juice, Balsamic Vinegar, Cracked White Pepper, Parmesan Crisp
- Tsetse Fly ($16) – Pernod Absinthe, Illegal Mezcal, Elizabeth All-Spice, Angostura Bitters, Torched Rosemary
