Review:

Stirred, strong and boozy - very boozy. Manhattan/Brooklyn-like. Rye whiskey-based with aromatised wine complexity and apricot brandy adding a touch of fruity sweetness. This riff on a Manhattan is a late-night sipper.

History:

Named after the Park Slope area of Brooklyn in New York City, this cocktail was created in 2009 by Julie Reiner as the House Manhattan for the opening menu of her bar Clover Club, which sits a couple of neighbourhoods away from Park Slope in Brooklyn's Carrol Gardens.
