Review:

Stirred and spirit-forward and Manhattan / Brooklyn-like. Rye whiskey-based with aromatised wine complexity and apricot brandy adding flavoursome fruity richness. A delightful 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.

Our 6:2:1 formula is courtesy of G. M. Genovese, a fellow Discerning Drinker, in November 2023. The original spec called for a whopping 75ml (1½oz rye whiskey, 22.5ml (¾oz) Punt E Mes, 10ml (⅓oz) apricot brandy, and 1 dash aromatic bitters.
