Cocktail of the Day: Brooklyn

In the course of our researches for the origins of the Mother-in-Law Cocktail, Dr. Cocktail reminded me of this classic and how it’s part of the Mother-in-Law’s extended family. It’s also been one of my favorite cocktails ever since.

Brooklyn Cocktail
1-1/2 oz rye or Bourbon
1/2 oz dry vermouth
1/4 oz Amer Picon (Torani Amer or Amer Boudreau)
1/4 oz maraschino liqueur

Stir in mixing glass with ice & strain into a cocktail glass.

I prefer this one with rye, of course.
