Breuckelen- 1 1/2 oz. @BolsGenever, 1/2. oz dry vermouth, 1/4 oz. maraschino, 1/4 oz. amer picon

24 Aug

This cocktail gets it’s name from The Village of Breuckelen in the Netherlands and later, the namesake for, the first “official” municipality in what became New York State, owned by the Dutch (Dutch West India Company) before losing ownership during the British conquest of New Netherlands. “Over time, the name evolved from Breuckelen, to Brockland, to Brocklin, to Brookline, to Brookland and eventually, to Brooklyn

The drinks nose was mead/citrus from the genever and the bitter orange notes of the Amer. Sip warm like a whiskey and smoothed by the vermouth while retaining spicyness. Swallow funky maraschino tempered again by vermouth. Bitters adds complexity and mingles well with the botanicals of the genever.

1 1/2 oz. Bols Genever
1/2 oz. dry vermouth (Dolin)
1/4 oz. Maraschino (Luxardo)
1/4 oz. Amer Picon (Torani Amer)
