Brooklyn - Consumatorium


The Brooklyn is one of the cocktails that got me interested in the larger world of ingredients. It’s a classic from the 1800s, but one of the key ingredients is an amaro called Amer Picon, which is not generally imported into the U.S. Some bars (including Boulder’s Bitter Bar) even attempt to make their own version of it. After a silly amount of online research, I learned that Amaro Ramazzotti plus a dash or two of orange bitters comes close. The result a slightly lighter alternative to a Manhattan.

  • 2 oz Rye whiskey
  • 1 oz Noilly Prat dry vermouth
  • 1/4 oz Amaro Ramazzotti
  • 1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
  • Dash or two orange bitters
  • Luxardo cherry

I may try to up the Amaro next time. This is a fun drink to experiment with.

  1. This is inspiring me to stock my bar!

  2. Definitely get some Amaro Montenegro. As I posted before, it’s even good straight up.

  3. Combining the bitters with the Amaro is simply brilliant. Great idea!
