During my trip to the States in July I sampled many a cocktail, but the Brooklyn really stood out amongst the others. A variation on the Manhattan that introduces Amer Picon and Maraschino to make things a little more interesting, I enjoyed it so much that while I only ever had one it has become the cocktail that reminds me most of my tours around the bars of New York.
Completing an exploration of the Brooklyn cocktail variations named after Brooklyn neighbourhoods, a trend started by Vincenzo Errico’s Red Hook. Our final three cocktails are the Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, and Bushwick.
Without doubt my favourite bar in New Orleans is Arnoud’s French 75 Bar. Last year after Tales of the Cocktail I enjoyed many superb drinks there made by bartender Chris Hannah. After trying his Bywater Cocktail there I set about trying to recreate it at home, and eight months later have finally managed it.
