Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema Introduces New Winter Menu


Snow days are upon us as the winter season slowly creeps in. Nitehawk Cinema, New York’s original dine-in theater, has concocted a new, wintery menu designed to moviegoers indulge on these frigid, winter days.  

First up, cocktails! Nitehawk Williamsburg’s beverage director, Rob Giles, is excited to introduce new seasonal cocktails to warm the senses. “One of our newest seasonal cocktails offerings is a drink called Rosemary’s Baby. It’s a play on a New York Sour, made with bourbon, lemon juice, and a rosemary simple syrup. It’s taken up a notch with the addition of St. Agrestis, a Brooklyn based amaro company, that imparts cinnamon, nutmeg, and preserved rhubarb. Finally, we finish it with Cabernet Sauvignon that creates a drink that is both herbal and rich, while at the same time quite refreshing.” 

New Signature Cocktails Include:

  • T.E. Lawrence:  Neversink Gin, sumac & cardamom tonic, stone pine liqueur, pomegranate, lime
  • The Ladykillers: Perry’s Tot Gin, elderflower, ginger, Earl Grey, lemon, Angostura

  • The Rum Diary: Jamaican rums, house-made cinnamon-coffee cola, lime
