NOLET’s Gin Takes Over The Palm Court at The Plaza

One of the city’s most iconic places is upping its game with a pairing not to be missed. The Plaza Hotel‘s Palm Court has introduced a cocktail and dessert pairing that provides New Yorkers with the perfect respite from the hot summer days. In partnership with NOLET’s Gin, The Palm Court has introduced two cocktail and dessert pairings that you won’t want to miss, available now through Labor Day.

All of the items were created to highlight the botanicals in NOLET’s Gin, including flavors like rose, peach and raspberry. The first pairing features the James’ Peachtree Fizz cocktail, a light, refreshing peach-centric libation, and the Palm Court Summer Verrine, a dessert comprised of peach and verbena tea sorbet, raspberry and rose compote, ginger crumble, peach flower, crystalized rose petals, pink grapefruit pearls and juniper pound cake. The next pairing features the Gin Blush + Hibiscus cocktail and the Hibiscus/Violet Vacherin, a lychee and rose ice cream with raspberry and rose coulis, coconut cream gelee, violet chantilly, crystallized flowers, blackcurrant pearls and juniper pound cake. The presentation on both desserts is so beautiful you almost (almost) don’t want to eat them. The latter pairing is a bit sweeter than the prior, but our favorite was the summer verrine and fizzy cocktail.

In addition to the fun pairing menu, The Palm Court well also provide customers access to the NOLET’s Martini Cart, a nostalgic bar cart serving gin martinis made-to-order tableside. Although we highly suggest stopping by and checking it out for yourself, for those who can’t, we can at least provide half the fun! Whip up your own NOLET’s Gin cocktails with the recipes below:
