Change is good, especially when it comes to your cocktail order. Mix it up this year by ordering one of these fun bowls—we promise they won't disappoint.
1. Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge Flabongo
A standard vodka soda with a wedge of lime isn’t bound to arouse much interest at the bar. Consider the Flabongo the ultimate cocktail conversation piece. Vodka, dry vermouth and sparkling wine are mixed with passionfruit, blood orange and lemon, and presented in a copper punch bowl shaped like a flamingo. The Flabongo serves four to six people, perfect for all those new friends you’ll be making. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, 1 Borgata Way, Atlantic City, 609.317.1000, theborgata.com
2. Sabroso+Sorbo Punch
Tucked into The Notary Hotel, this Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant is good for more than just red snapper veta la palma—look to the "Punch" section of the menu, which features three shareable cocktail options dubbed Signed, Sealed & Delivered. Each features a different liquor and comes in a punch bowl with edible garnishes. It's time to plan a GNO. 21 N. Juniper St., 215.496.3200, thenotaryhotel.com
3. Sampan Scorpion Bowl
Classics never go out of style, which is why we keep ordering the Scorpion Bowl at Michael Schulson and Nina Tinari’s Pan-Asian steward. Choose from the tequila (white wine, green tea and citrus), vodka (strawberry, ginger beer and lime) or rum (watermelon, calamansi and mint) to complement your crab wonton tacos. 124 S. 13th St., 215.732.3501, sampanphilly.com
