Do you have a signature drink? If you do, it’s time to change it up. Next time you go out to dinner, don’t stick to the same old, same old. This winter at PCFP, we’re debuting 4 new customly crafted winter drinks. Pick out a new favorite!
Here’s a taste of our new winter drinks menu at PCFP:
A punch of Spanish origin, sangria has a unique history with the American audience. The drink was first introduced to the colonial era under the name sangaree, a similar beverage served either hot or cold. By the early 20th century, the drink had largely fallen out of favor until it was revived in the late 1940s by Hispanic American influence.
Now, PCFP is taking an old-favorite recipe like sangria and adding a bit of a winter flair to create the perfect drink for a January afternoon. Made with sparkling Italian white wine, brandy, peach, and apricot nectar, our prosecco sangria will help you brighten up the cold winter weather.
Try this refreshing drink on a lunch date at PCFP with our caprese flatbread or with another favorite from our lunch menu.
Cachaça is a distilled spirit made from sugar cane juice. It is sometimes referred to as Brazilian rum, but that moniker has become outdated as there are several key differences between rum and cachaça.
First, while rum is produced around the world (most popularly in the Caribbean), cachaça is produced exclusively in Brazil. Also, rum is usually made from molasses, which is cooked from sugarcane juice; whereas, cachaça is always made from fresh-pressed sugarcane juice, called garapa.
At PCFP, we’re adding cachaça to our new winter drinks menu with a delicious cranberry cachaça. This cocktail is made with (of course) cranberries and cachaça, brown sugar, and fresh lime and orange wedges.

Scotch blood orange old-fashioned
Considered one of the six basic drinks every bartender should know, the old-fashioned cocktail is one of the most popular drinks in history.
First developed in the 19th century, the original recipe called for whiskey or brandy with muddled sugar, bitters, and a citrus rind. The cocktail has since undergone countless modifications as bartenders experiment with new recipes and new flavors.
As a part of our new winter drinks menu at PCFP, you can try a scotch blood orange old-fashioned this winter season. In lieu of the traditional bourbon or rye whiskey, our old-fashioned uses scotch, sugar, bitters, blood orange juice and wedges, and maraschino cherries.
Peppermint chocolate martini
The history of the martini is unclear. Some say it was invented during the 1870s to celebrate a miner’s lucky streak in the Gold Rush. Some say that the martini was created by an Italian immigrant before World War I. Still, others say that the drink was first enjoyed by the British Army in the late 19th century.
While its recipes can vary as much as its history, the martini is a cocktail traditionally made with gin or vodka and vermouth, usually garnished with an olive or lemon twist.
To make the classic martini a cocktail fit for the winter season, PCFP introduces a peppermint chocolate martini to its new drinks menu. Made with vodka, peppermint liqueur, and chocolate liqueur, this winter martini is the perfect choice for an after-dinner drink.
Make a reservation at PCFP and plan your night out for dinner and a satisfying peppermint chocolate martini.
