What are we if not the most festive small town in Philadelphia? Our beloved Manayunk is chock-full-of Fall fun, from trick-or-treating on Main Street to seasonal drinks that are sure to get you in the Fall spirit (even if it is still warm outside). We tried the best Manayunk has to offer, saving you valuable time and money (for a second cocktail). Check out our top picks below!
Winnie's: Mule of the Month (Featuring Pumpkin-Infused Vodka)
Being a huge Moscow Mule fan, I knew I had to try this specialty cocktail. It perfectly combines pumpkin-infused vodka, apple cider, and ginger beer. It may sound overwhelming, but the sweet cider complements the tart ginger beer perfectly. A must try this season!
Winnie's: Maple Bacon Sour
Okay, really. How are you supposed to turn down a drink that has a full piece of crispy bacon in it? It's a snack and cocktail all in one (a snacktail?). This bourbon-based drink is surprisingly light, and leaves you with a slightly sweet taste from the pure maple syrup. If 'cozy' could describe a drink it would be this one.
Sona: Jack-O-Traveler Pumpkin Shandy
Many of us have heard of a Summer shandy, but who knew a pumpkin shandy could be even better? This slightly sweet wheat beer offers the best of Fall flavors: cinnamon, nutmug, and a hint of sweet pumpkin. This could certainly be described as homemade pumpkin pie in a glass, and it's definitely worth a try!
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. " – Benjamin Franklin
So drink a pumpkin shandy and be happy!
