So, whether guests enjoy a great white wine or they are trying to hunt down the perfect cocktail, the Holiday Spirits Cocktail Cruise 2015 is the location for them.

Of course, the evening would not be the event that it is without more than just a sampling of beverages. It also includes a full catered event with a complimentary buffet dinner, not to mention music playing while cruising around the breathtaking New York Harbor. It provides a unique view of the city many locals have not even had the opportunity to take in. ¬†Trust us, we went last year (and here’s the proof).
