I'm pretty excited about all

I'm pretty excited about all of these brooklyn variations- thanks for rounding them up! I started with this one, using imbue bittersweet vermouth in place of dry since it was open, and bulleit rye. Really delicious, and a great use for montenegro- though I'm sure any of the lighter amari would work well if one didn't have it. I wasn't sure about the cucumber slices, but they work well with the herbaceousness of the rye and vermouth.

I love meletti, but that

I love meletti, but that would be a very different drink. Can you get cora, vecchio del capo, or bittermen's amere nouvelle? Or maybe ciociaro? Those would all be in the right neighborhood I think...

Very light and moderately

Very light and moderately dry. A bit of muddling wouldn't hurt to get more cucumber into the flavor profile. A nice variation, but not one I would return to often.
