Featured Post Manhattan

Exploring the Borough

The Brooklyn is one of my favourite cocktails, and there are many great variations on the drink named after Brooklyn neighbourhoods. Vincenzo Errico’s Red Hook started the trend, and drinks inspired by the Red Hook like the Greenpoint and Bensonhurst soon followed.

This is starting to get silly…

Continuing the theme of bitters heavy drinks, I take a look at two cocktails from New York bartender Giuseppe Gonzalez that make use of frankly insane amounts of Angostura bitters to delicious effect. What better way to celebrate Angostura bitters going back in to production!

MxMO – Amaro

This month Mixology Monday features amaros – bitter liqueurs traditionally from Italy that are drank after dinner over ice. The Berlioni is a delicious Negroni variation that uses Cynar, an unusual amaro that is flavoured using artichoke lending it a distinct vegetal note.

Why oh rye?

Why oh rye?
