January means downtime for most of the forkers who haven’t joined the snowbird flock South in search of greener pastures. So, if you feel like mixing things up a bit this winter, try your hand at recreating an original cocktail from one of your favorite North Fork hotspots. Better yet, stop by and have one made for you!

If you’re looking to warm those winter bones, try a Spicy Peach Jalapeño Martini from Noah’s in Greenport or if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth, take a sip of Brianna’s Cinnamon Bun Martini at Four Doors Down in Mattituck. No matter your mood, North Fork bartenders will bring the heat and the sweet to your taste buds.
