Cocktail Hour: The Brooklynite

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 14, 2016

The Brooklynite Cocktail comes to us from the Stork Club Bar in Manhattan, New York. (It appears in the 1946 edition of the Stork Club Bar Book.) It is a simple cocktail, basically a daiquiri made with dark Jamaican Rum, lime juice, and honey. At least one source I researched (The Internet Cocktail Database) adds bitters to the recipe.

Today, I have switched out the dark Jamaican rum for a lighter bodied, but more fully aged column distilled rum from Columbia (Dictador Amber 100 month Aged Rum). I have also used honey syrup rather than straight honey in the recipe. These changes result in a different final cocktail. This is because Jamaican Dark Rum has strong molasses flavours which dominate the original cocktail. The lighter bodied Dictador Rum creates a lighter bodied cocktail and the less sweet honey syrup allows us to enjoy the subtle flavour nuances of the well aged Dictador rum .


2 oz Dicatador Amber 100 Month Aged Rum
1/2 oz Honey syrup (1:1 ratio honey and hot water)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
dash of Angostura Bitters
Twist of Lime Peel

Add the four ingredients into a metal shaker with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Double Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with a twist of lime
