Brooklynite

Brooklynite cocktail with aged rum, honey syrup, lime juice, and Angostura bitters

The Brooklynite hails from the 1946 Stork Club Bar Book, and out of the many versions of the recipe that have come about since then, we think this one from the Rum Howler blog is the best interpretation.

The Brooklynite is a close match for the Honeysuckle cocktail, with some small-but-important differences. A smaller measure of honey and lemon allow the rum to shine through, and aged rum in place of the Honeysuckle’s light rum combines with the bitters for a spicy, smooth, more spirit-forward profile.
