Our Comment:

This Manhattan-like drink is one of many to emerge since 2006 taking their inspiration from the Brooklyn cocktail.


A riff on the classic created in 2006 by Chad Solomon at Milk & Honey, Manhattan and named after a neighbourhood close to his home in Brooklyn, New York City, USA.

For the full story behind the Brooklyn and other variations see our Brooklyn page.
