House of Picon: The Brooklyn Cocktail

By Jonathan Laurel January 18, 2018 Cocktails

Depending on who you believe, the Brooklyn cocktail first appeared by the 1880s but made its first print appearance in 1908. There are more versions of this cocktail than there are dives in its eponymous borough. Ours finds itself close to the original—a relative (and neighbor) to the Manhattan cocktail—and is a taste of the thing we care about most: authenticity. Showing off our Amer Picon, the Brooklyn combines it with Kentucky rye whiskey, Cocchi de Torino, and maraschino liqueur. The Brooklyn also joins the Liberal and the Picon Punch on our House of Picon cocktail flight, for those wanting to get a cross-section of Picon cocktails.
