Churchill Day in NYC? Celebrate at The Churchill
Looking for a Churchill Day party? Head over to The Churchill tonight and celebrate in true English fashion. Today is Churchill Day, the 51st Anniversary of the naming Winston Churchill the first honorary Citizen of the United States of America by President John F. Kennedy.
To celebrate the anniversary, The Churchill will offer a special happy hour from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., followed by a special “Fun with Hendrick’s Gin” cocktail menu, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The special menu includes drinks such as the The Churchill Martini (Johnny Walker Black, Earl Grey Syrup, Apricot and Peach), the Hendricks High Tea (gin, cucumber syrup, tonic, lemon and pepper) and the Clementine Churchill (champagne with St. Germaine and orange bitters). Plates of stilton and port, a dish rumored to be a favorite of Sir Winston Churchill’s, will also be available for purchase.
Churchill said: “I have taken more good from alcohol than alcohol has taken from me.” So head on over to The Churchill and celebrate a very wise dude.
