Freelancers who had a stoop sale to cover their taxes, advance planners who already celebrated their refunds at the bar, closeted Brokelyn-reading one percenters: we’ve got one reason tax season doesn’t have to suck: The first ever Brooklyn Cocktail Book is now on sale! Let the bartender muddle away your troubles, and before you’ve even hit that second Pimm’s Cup, you’ll be smiling and ready for spring.
Our Middle Brooklyn Cocktail Book works like this: for $20, you get a pocket-sized, smartly-designed collection of 2-for-1 drink tickets at 20 tip-top bars from Bed-Stuy to Red Hook that serve fresh and creative cocktails. That’s 20 free drinks! And the books are good through Dec. 15, 2015, so you can take your time exploring.
If you’re a cocktail enthusiast, you know your good taste doesn’t come cheap. The Cocktail Book pays for itself in just two bar visits — and then you’re practically making money just by drinking margaritas! Don’t sleep on ordering one—if they’re anything like our world-famous Beer Books, they will go faster than you can say “Bartender, make me a double!” Here’s the full lineup of participating boozeries:
Abilene • The Adirondack • Branch Ofc. • The Castello Plan • Dick & Jane’s Bar • The Emerson • Ervs on Beekman • Fort Defiance • The Great Georgiana • Halyard’s • Hunter’s • J’eatjet? • Lea • Lowlands Bar • One Last Shag • Project Parlor • quarter Bar • The Saint Catherine • Sea Witch Tavern • Skylark
Smartly designed by local artist Madelyn Owens, our Cocktail Book is the perfect fix for warm weather: how good does it sound to while away a summer’s night in Lowlands’ epic backyard with an icy cold margarita in hand and another on the way? Don a Hawaiian shirt and hula hoop on over to Fort Defiance for a Mai Tai on Thursday Tiki nights? Duck into Dick & Jane’s after a day in the sun and cool off with “The Steve McQueen,” a gin-and-elderflower refresher?
At Hunter’s on Smith Street, choose from cocktails named after famous hunters, from “Handsome Hound” to “Katniss Everdeen” — because drinking is meant to be fun. And find out what all the fuss is about by trying one of three exclusive Cocktail Book offerings at the tiny Erv’s on Beekman, the diminutive darling of the city’s mixology scene.
