The new year seems to be coming in like a lion, which is all the more reason to greet it with an aromatic, warm and somewhat stiff drink.
We could name several favorite drinks from Maison Premiere (especially the absinthe), but are particularly taken with their “Maltese Falcon.” To get a shot of the action along with the recipe, we reached out to their bar to show us how.
Let us attest that the following recipes, along with many others in the Edible Brooklyn Cookbook, are the remedy for any cold winter evening — or any stifling summer day, for that matter.
Forget tonic water and orange juice. Alex Abbott Boyd, founder of Cocktail Crate, has created a line of mixers made of whole, fresh, local and organic ingredients that make serving cocktails much more fun.
Tomorrow and Thursday, Edible teams up with eight liquor shops throughout Brooklyn for a Hendrick’s Gin Tasting. Lucky us — we’ve got the Hendrick’s gin cocktail recipe that Ayana Suknanan from Gnarly Vines Wines and Spirits will make!
Local, seasonal cocktails sound hard to come by, until you realize you live in a city that’s surrounded by sweet corn and tomatoes. White Pike Whiskey, located in the Finger Lakes, does all the farming, milling, distilling and bottling to create their smooth, clean whiskey. Lucky us, Steven Ljubicic from White Pike gave us his recipe for the perfect fall cocktail: the Bloody Mary.
Toast Dorothy Parker’s birthday with an apropos cocktail and spirit.
While bartender contests are usually not our scene (don’t you HATE it when you get a recipe that calls for three things you’ve never even heard of, let alone have in your pantry?), there was one drink at the Don Julio Tequila cocktail competition at Good Spirits we tried that we absolutely have to, and can easily, make at home.
The Forrest Gump cocktail from Nick and Toni’s Cafe features Brooklyn’s own Cacao Prieto Cacao Rum, which we wrote about in Edible Brooklyn. It goes down easy with some Valentine’s chocolate, just saying…
After all the holiday feasting and feting, who couldn’t use a little pick-me-up to get through the work week? Here’s a cocktail from the folks at Kings County Distillery and Marlow & Sons restaurant in Williamsburg that’s just right for our we’d-rather-be-baking-cookies-than-sitting-at-this-desk mood.
Late summer sunsets go down best with a cool cocktail in the hand. With that in mind, we dug up this fantastically herbaceous and spicy tipple, compliments of Greg Seider, an owner of The Summit Bar on Avenue C. Stop what you’re doing, raid your garden and make it now.
On a hot summer day, the list of cocktails we crave is nearly endless—-an icy gin & tonic, a salty margarita, a sweet mint julep. But as they say, when in Rome. When in Manhattan, why not drink a Manhattan?
