Manhattan lovers listen up. The Brooklyn cocktail is a classic whiskey drink made with maraschino liqueur, dry vermouth, and bitters.


  • 2 ounces bourbon or rye whiskey
  • 1 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 1/4 ounce Amer Picon, Ramazzotti, Montenegro (Amaro), or 2 dashes each of Angostura and orange bitters
  • Luxardo cherry garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients (except the cherry) in a mixing glass filled halway with ice.
  2. Stir vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe or Nick and Nora glass. Garnish with a Luxardo cherry.


Amer Picon is very difficult to find in the US so many bartenders substitute with an Italian Amaro such as Ramazzotti or Montenegro.
