Favorite Gin: Brooklyn Gin
Why: “It’s only 80 proof, so it has less alcoholic heat compared to other gins. The extra citrus in the blend really allows for great mixability.”
Buy for Home: $44.99, 750 ml; Westchester Wine Warehouse, 53 Tarrytown Rd, White Plains (914) 824-1400; westchesterwine.com.
Enjoy at Restaurant: The Bronx Cocktail, a classic cocktail that’s been adapted to the restaurant’s specifications. “Composed of Brooklyn Gin, Martini & Rossi Dry Vermouth and Sweet Vermouth, orange juice, and a dash of lavender bitters, it makes for a great aperitif, and really helps open the palate before dinner.”
Drink Up: $10; 851 Central Ave, Scarsdale (914) 472-1032; racanellisnewyorkitalian.com.
