Halloween Party Cocktail?

gyp7318, Lichido is really delicious! I'm surprised you haven't heard of it. It's made of lychee, peach and guava. It's pink and pretty but it packs a real punch cuz it hides the taste of any hard alcohol and makes it taste lychee-ish. I'm kind of wishing I had some right now, actually. And yeah, the lychee eyeballs are definitely the final Halloween touch! :-)

Halloween Party Cocktail?

Do either of you know if it's safe to drink liquid with dry ice in it? I did a search and it's only carbon dioxide. So in theory, it should be OK, right? I've always done the punch-bowl within a cauldron thing just to be safe..but I'm curious.

Moroccan

We recently ate at Nomad, and found the food to be authentic and delicious. It's tiny, but quiet and cozy. Definitely recommend it.

Cranberry vodka and blood orange juice... what else?

How about some fresh muddled mint? Or some Lichido Lychee Liqueur? Or a dash of Leblon Cachaca and ginger syrup?

Korean BBQ

You gotta go to Woo Lae Oak or Kum Gang San. They're the only ones we go to..and quite often at that..

Halloween Party Cocktail?

I'm having a Halloween Party and serving Lychee Punch made with Lichido Liqueur, Belvedere Vodka, Orange Juice and Lychee Nuts. The Lichido is the perfect flavor, the OJ adds tang and color, and the lychee nuts simulate eyeballs...perfect for Halloween!! Now if only I didn't have to use the canned ones :-(

NYC best JUST dessert places?

How did Veniero's manage to escape this list? It's the mother of all dessert places.

Petite Abeille - Review

Surprisingly good food and service. Very cozy "our place" kind of atmosphere. The waffles are deadly good. Unfortunately, though, they are no longer serving their delicious frisee salad..

Frozen Lychees

I need to find frozen lychees for my Halloween Lichido Punch. I beg you to help me out so I don't have to resort to the canned ones! I am willing to travel to all boroughs to find this.

Anyone tried Lichido?

I had a Lichido martini at Morimoto and it was amazing. I asked to meet the beverage manager just to find out how he made it and he said he used lichido, sake, soju and muddled mint.

LA-style fish tacos in NYC

The closest I've found is at Rosa Mexicano. Not quite the same but delicious regardless.

Recommendations for Brunch that serves outside.......want for Sunday Sept 17th

"Coffee Shop" on Union Square has excellent brunch and outdoor seating (although if you sit inside you may catch some very good live music during Sunday brunch)
