  • I also like this version: http://ohgo.sh/archive/brooklyn-cocktail-variations-red-hook-greenpoint-bensonhurst-recipe/
  • Dry and bitter, in a good way.A bit milk-chocolatey on the swallow.
  • Nice. Like a drier Manhattan, lighter on its feet. 3.5, if I could.

I had one of these at Bergamot in Somerville, MA (Boston area) and it was stunning.

In Regarding Cocktails, Chad Solomon claimed credit for this Brooklyn variation. There, the recipe calls for 2 oz rittenhouse, 1 oz dolin dry, 2 t luxardo maraschino, and 1 t cynar.  That's also the ohgo.sh recipe.  Perhaps this is more definitive?

Curated to add link suggested in comments, and to adjust quantities and add brands indicated there. Thanks @bza and @noksagt.

Weirdly, I had one just last night for the first time in forever. Somehow my recipe says 1/4 oz each maraschino and Cynar. It's damn good that way, too.
