With minimal travel, you can temporarily move your home “office” to a new setting while taking advantage of special offers that sweeten the deal such as weekly rates, adding an extra night for free, or reduced midweek rates.

New York craft distilleries use the state’s agricultural bounty to source the grains, fruits, and botanicals that help make vodkas, whiskies, gins, and other spirits. So we thought, why not take it a step further and connect these spirits to beloved New York State attractions? Working with our friends at the New York Distillers Guild, we tasked emerging brands from around the state with creating a cocktail with a flavor profile or story that pays homage to a landmark in their respective tourism region. Behold, cocktails dedicated to New York attractions and crafted with New York spirits. Do make these at home, while remembering to drink responsibly.
