The Brooklyn Cocktail Recipe

A spirited riff on the better-known Manhattan.

The Brooklyn may be less well-known than its neighbor, the Manhattan, but it's equally delicious. The maraschino liqueur (we recommend Luxardo) adds a rich sweetness, which compensates for the fact that dry rather than sweet vermouth is used. Amer Picon is difficult to find in the United States, but an Italian amaro such as Ramazzotti will substitute quite well. Or, you can skate by with a few dashes of bitters.
