SEATTLE; CHINATOWNI NTERNATIONAL DISTRICT

Wing Luke Museum

 

Maritime Parc, located at the marina at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, is well known for its stunning views of Manhattan and its elegant food, but its cocktail list is really worth perusing. These drinks aren’t just delicious—most of the specialty cocktails are inspired by and named for famous shipwrecks off the coast of New Jersey or New York.

The Spanish steamer Vizcaya was headed for Havana on Nov. 1, 1890, when it collided with a coal schooner, Cornelius Hargrave. The wreck is located off the coast of New Jersey about 25 miles south of the Manasquan inlet.

 

Ferndale’s Otus Supply opened last year, and named this cocktail after a song by New Orleans’ Rebirth Brass Band.
