Red Hook

I first found the Red Hook a few years ago in a great post by Paul Clarke. Named for an area of my old hometown, Brooklyn, New York, this rye cocktail is an appropriately edgy and solid relative of the Brooklyn and the Manhattan. I’ve become very fond of it and keep it in regular rotation, adding a lemon twist to brighten things up and compliment the rye.

Red Hook
  • 2 oz rye
  • 1/2 oz Punt e Mes
  • 1/4 oz maraschino
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Deploy the twist.
