Get away from your kitchen table or makeshift office for a while and upgrade to a remote workspace at one of New York State’s amazing hotels or resorts. 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. Have kids in remote learning at school? Bring them along too—beyond free wifi, some hotels and resorts offer programming aimed at young learners, and at the very least, the little ones will enjoy a quick getaway.

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.
