Like the Red Hook, the Brooklyn is another offshoot of the Manhattan and this is an offshoot of that. It’s only a minor diversion from the classic Brooklyn recipe, but it makes all the difference, and we think for the better.
The main change is suggested in the title. The typical dry vermouth used in the classic Brooklyn cocktail is replaced with a Blanc (or Bianco) off-dry vermouth which ups the luxuriousness (is that a word…it is now).
Secondly, Amer Picon is replaced with Nonino Amaro. It’s a little lighter in style and that helps to allow all the other ingredients to sing. However, we won’t get mad if you have a particular amaro you love which you want to use, or if you prefer to stay with Amer Picon.
