A Brooklyn-themed cocktail extravaganza? Surprisingly, this is not a dream I had last night. This is a REAL LIFE event happening on October 2nd 6-9pm– Brooklyn Shaken & Stirred from Brooklyn Exposed. All of your favorite local spirits brands and cocktail bars will be there; like Brooklyn Gin, Pok Pok, Fort Defiance, Brooklyn Republic Vodka, Van Brunt Stillhouse, and more, PLUS wine from Brooklyn Winery and Brooklyn Oenology and beer from Sixpoint.
Freaking out yet? Just wait a sec, you’ll have proper time to freak out after I tell you a couple more things. You’ll be able to pair your drinks with snacks from Allswell, Stone Park Cafe, Robicelli’s, Ovenly, and others. AND there’s a DJ for proper tune-age while we drink and dine.
AND now for Becoming Brooklyn readers only– a discount! Yep, that’s right. $5 for Becoming Brooklyn readers with the discount code BECOMINGBK. So get your tickets here now. I’ll see you there!
Until then, I’ll leave you with a cocktail recipe for the image above, Calyer Royale by Greenhook Ginsmiths.
1.5 oz Greenhook American Dry
.25 oz Rich Vanilla Syrup
.25 oz Laird’s Bonded Applejack
