Drink this Brooklyn cocktail
The Brooklyn cocktail has evolved since it first appeared in print in 1908. Most modern versions are on the drier side. Our version is 2 ounces Rittenhouse Bonded Rye, 1 ounce Dolin dry vermouth, ¼ ounce maraschino liqueur, ¼ ounce Bigallet China-China Amer and 2 dashes Angostura bitters. Stir ingredients together with ice for 45 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass. Express a lemon twist over the drink’s surface. The result is a softly bitter, nutty variation of the Manhattan.
