Just in time for the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, Stone Rose Lounge—one of the Upper West Side’s première cocktail bars—has developed a special drinks menu to celebrate the 2012 Summer Games. The libations are named for the national anthems of Italy, the United Kingdom, Greece, Spain and the United States and feature traditional ingredients from each respective country. The Brothers of Italy (pictured above), for instance, is a subtle blend of gin, Aperol and vermouth, with a splash of orange bitters; the Star Spangled Banner features bourbon, rhubarb bitters and strawberry slices. (The bar’s sister establishments, Whiskey Park and Living Room, will also be serving the drinks.) Sip with pride—the cocktails are available through August 12, when the games come to a close. Time Warner Center, 10 Columbus Cir., 4th fl.; 212-823-9770; gerberbars.com.
