Selanne Steak Tavern is known for its outstanding creative cocktails that change seasonally. Now, the iconic contemporary steakhouse is unveiling seven newly created quaffs to usher in the energy and sense of new adventures that come with fall.

New cocktails were developed and carefully chosen by beverage savvy General Manager Chad Sisco with the enthusiastic assistance of bartenders Justin Wade and Art Gill. The lucky “7” are available throughout Selanne Steak Tavern – to be enjoyed pre, during or post a splendid dinner in the restaurant or, of course, on their own at the bar.

New fall cocktails debut at Selanne Steak Tavern

With hues of tangerine, pink and berry, the new libations are lovely to look at and photograph. The names are suggestive of the fall including The Great Pumpkin and Harvest Moon, and they are bursting with aromatic, full-of-flavor and satisfying tastes – pumpkin spice, orange bitters, cinnamon, blackberry – all combined with fine specialty liquors. All the new cocktails are priced at $15, as well as older favorite signature drinks such as Spicy Pear, Velvet Alley and The Hat Trick.

Selanne’s new fall specialty cocktails include the following seven sip-tastic pleasures: 

–Charlatan featuring Buffalo Trace Bourbon, cinnamon simple, lemon and egg white.

–The Great Pumpkin created with Stoli Vanilla, pumpkin spice puree, cream, with a graham cracker rim.

–Harvest Moon concocted with Libre Cinnamon Tequila, simple and orange bitters.

–Sexy Eyes made with Grey Goose L’Orange, shiso, cranberry and simple syrup.

–Sunday Best composed of Casamigos Reposado Tequila, blackberry, lime and jalapeno agave syrup.

–Spice of Life with Stoli Vanilla, Pama Liqueur, cinnamon simple and lime.
