This cocktail is a variation on a last word where gin is replaced with reposado tequila, and Green Chartreuse is replaced with Amaro Nonino. It's light, citrusy, herbaceous, and a little sweet. Maraschino Liqueur has nothing to do with the atomic red chemical-laden abominations most people call Maraschino Cherries. It's a traditional liqueur distilled from Marasca cherries that dates back to the mid-1700's and is often used as an alternative sweetener in pre-prohibition era cocktails. In other words, it's made using old-world methods and does not contain space-age chemical flavors. Amaro Nonino is a light amaro with notes of orange spice, chamomile, and a smattering of eucalyptus. It's an elegant approachable digestif that is soft enough to work well as an introductory amaro, but complex enough to satisfy the seasoned veteran.

This drink is a riff on an old fashioned. Apple Brandy is one of the first true American distillates dating back to colonial times. Rudimentary distillation was achieved when settles let cider ferment, then set buckets outside in the cold. Much of the water content would freeze and the remaining liquid was, in effect, apple hooch. This cocktail highlights Black Dirt apple brandy which, like Laird's bonded, has a 100 proof alcoholic kick. While Laird's is fruitier and a little sweeter, Black Dirt is earthier and a little funky. We add more depth and a little darkness to this with our unofficial trademarked “Cyn-strap”. Demerara is a raw sugar from Guyana. It has a darker, heavier taste than refined white sugar. Nocino is an alpine walnut digestif. The effect on the cocktail is not an overt nuttiness, but helps to round out the overall flavor profile. @thejakewalk #cocktails #carrollgardens #brooklyn #cynstrap #applebrandy #cynar #blackstrap #halfwrapped #craftbeer #menu @blueprintspirits #blackdirt #nealbayless

This negroni variation dates back to as early as 1928, and is named in honor of the famed 4 time Olympic fencing champion. The bitterness of the Campari and strength of the gin is offset by the citrusy sweet notes of the cointreau and dry herbaceous bite of dry vermouth. This cocktail is excellent as an aperitif or for someone who wants something on the lighter side, but still booze-forward. #enjoy #negroni #classic #cocktails #drink #carrollgardens #brooklyn #luciengaudin #fencing #olympics #1924 #1928 #france #champion #fordsgin #campari @hausalpenz @simon_the86co
