One of Midtown New York’s ’s most intimate cocktail lounges, The Rickey at Dream Midtown has launched two new cocktails for its secret-off-the-menu:The Fearless Agent and Tsetse Fly. These are exclusively visible through the venue’s Instagram page, @therickeyny. To order one, customers simply need to show their bartender that they follow The Rickey at Dream Midtown.

  • Fearless Agent ($16) – Absolut Vodka, Lime Juice, Balsamic Vinegar, Cracked White Pepper, Parmesan Crisp
  • Tsetse Fly ($16) – Pernod Absinthe, Illegal Mezcal, Elizabeth All-Spice, Angostura Bitters, Torched Rosemary

Secret-off-the-menu items are nothing new, but the integration of using one of Instagram’s newer features to unveil, and in turn, showcase these seasonal cocktails is pretty creative and consumer friendly.
