The Doughnut Project has been preparing for fall and its holidays with a variety of special treats. Next week, the New York City doughnut shop will offer a Day of the Dead-inspired doughnut that has a flavor profile similar to pan de muerto, with orange blossom and anise, and is decorated with colored sugar and a frosted shortbread cookie in the shape of a skull.
Also new this month is the D.E.W.nut, which comes from a partnership with Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey. The doughnut is celebrating the seasonal release of Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask, the first whiskey to be finished in hard apple cider casks.
Available October 18-30, D.E.W.nuts are made with Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask Finish-infused apple filling, then topped with the whiskey-infused glaze, whipped cream, and a pie lattice. Each doughnut costs $4.75 and is available at The Doughnut Project's 10 Morton Street store in New York City.
“The Tullamore D.E.W. and The Doughnut Project collaboration is one that our team is ecstatic about,” says Gillian Murphy, East Coast Ambassador for Tullamore D.E.W. “The D.E.W.nut is a perfect way to celebrate fall with a delicious mix of apples and Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask. We are looking forward to working on more collaborations that expand the way our whiskey is enjoyed.”
The Doughnut Project has been known to collaborate with many of New York City's restaurants and bars on unique doughnut offerings. Beverages ranging from tequila to wine to hard apple cider have been infused into special limited-time doughnuts.
