NRN Features Refinery Rooftop in Taking the drunk out of drinks

For Nick Rini, head bartender at Refinery Rooftop at the Refinery Hotel in New York City’s garment district, “a mocktail list is a must-have for any NYC bar worth its salt.”

Rini’s menu includes the POM Rosemary “Mule”, a virgin take on the Moscow Mule made with pomegranate juice, lime juice, rosemary syrup, soda water and Q ginger beer. Her Spicy Cucumber Soda is made with cucumber juice, chile tincture, lime juice, simple syrup and soda.
