The Brooklyn

A modern and sweeter twist on the classic Manhattan, The Brooklyn is the perfect winter drink to sip by a fireplace or Christmas tree.  With a touch of Maple Syrup for sweetness and orange bitters and peel for brightness, The Brooklyn will keep you warm and cheery all holiday season. – Patty

The Brooklyn

  • Author: Patty
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x



  • 2 oz Bourbon or Rye (I use Bulleit Bourbon for mixed drinks)
  • 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 tsp of Maple Syrup 
  • 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • 1 dash of Orange Bitters
  • Orange peel


  1. Add all the ingredients (except the orange peel) into a mixing glass with ice, and stir until well-chilled.
  2. For a Brooklyn up, strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe glass. For a Brooklyn on the rocks, strain the cocktail into an Old Fashioned Glass with 1 or 2 large ice cubes.
  3. Garnish with the orange peel which you can run around the sides of the glass rim before placing in the glass. Enjoy!
