The Brooklyn cocktail is a unique spin on the Manhattan! Maraschino liqueur and bitters make a nuanced finish to this stunning drink. 


  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) rye whiskey
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) dry vermouth
  • 1/2 tablespoon Maraschino liqueur
  • 1/2 tablespoon herbal citrusy amaro like Amer Picon*, or a few dashes of Angostura bitters
  • For the garnish: lemon twist, Luxardo cherry or cocktail cherry


  1. Add the rye whiskey, dry vermouth, maraschino liqueur, and amaro to a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Shake vigorously until cold.
  2. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon slice or crystalized ginger, if desired.


*Amer Picon can be hard to find, so ask your liquor store for an herbal, citrusy amaro. We used Amaro Tosolini.
