About this Cocktail

Oh great, another Brooklyn variation? Yeah, yeah, yeah - deal with it. These days, it's hard enough just coming up with a name for the damn thing, much less an original recipe. Folks have been scouring the maps for every last neighborhood, street, park, bar, and manhole cover for names for their own variations for over a hundred years now. Do we really need another? I doubt it, but this one is pretty damn tasty.

  • 2 oz. Tanqueray Malacca Gin
  • 1/2 oz. Bonal Gentiane Quina
  • 1/4 oz. Maraschino
  • 1/4 oz. Cardamaro

Y'all know the drill...

Measure out all ingredients into a mixing glass, add ice, give a nice long stir, and strain into a coupe. Garnish with a generous piece of orange peel.

    Subbed Hum for Cardamero; still worked. Very nice.
  • Mike Yorke
    Cardamero or Cardamoro ?
  • Zack Miller
    @Mike Let's split the difference; it should be CardamAro. Fixed.
