Not sure what you might like? Sometimes the simplest drinks are the best. No bold colors, no umbrellas, no frills. The cocktails that have stood the test of time—the classics—are enjoyed by regulars and newbies alike at Marie Nicole’s. And chances are you will enjoy them too.

Manhattan Cocktail
One of the finest and oldest cocktails, this is a true classic. As with a martini, you’ll find slight variations of the Manhattan based on your preference, but at Marie Nicole’s, we believe rye whisky makes the best Manhattan cocktail. After all, that was the original liquor used for this much-loved drink. As the one enjoying the cocktail, the choice is ultimately yours, so if you prefer something else in your Manhattan, go for it.

Rob Roy
Many of our regulars love to toast the Scottish folk hero with a classic Rob Roy cocktail. Similar to the beloved Manhattan cocktail, this one uses scotch instead of rye to create a deliciously bold flavor. While this traditional liquor may not be your usual choice, stir in some sweet red vermouth and a bit of bitters, and you’re bound to love it.

Neat and Straight-Up
If you’re a scotch or whisky lover who doesn’t like their liquor “tainted” by a mixer, you’re in luck at Marie Nicole’s. Our selection is the best on the island. As one of the best bars in Wildwood NJ, we’re proud to offer more than 30 bottles, including some of our favorites such as:

Knob Creek 9-year-old Reserve

Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Michter’s American Whiskey Unblended
