Drink to your neighborhood

This New Year's Eve we know what we'll be drinking: a Red Hook Cocktail.

The Times details some of the mixologists' newest creations, which include a drink named after the scruffy nabe.

Created by former Milk & Honey bartender Enzo Errico, it's a mix of rye, sweet vermouth and maraschino liqueur. According to The Big Apple, here's how you make it:

2 ounces rye whiskey
1/2 ounce Punt y Mes
1/4 - 1/2 ounce maraschino, to taste

Stir with ice, strain into chilled cocktail glass.

The sweet drink has "inspired at least a dozen more sub-riffs by other ardent cocktail classicists," says the Times, "with almost all the drinks named after Brooklyn neighborhoods, including the Greenpoint (which uses Chartreuse), the Cobble Hill (Amaro Montenegro and cucumber slices) and the Bensonhurst (maraschino liqueur and Cynar)."

If Errico's looking to tailor drinks after all of Brooklyn's neighborhood's, he'll have to have a lot of time on his hands.
