The Clover Club, one of our favorite bars in Brooklyn, had their Pedro’s Martinez chosen as one of the Tasting Table’s NYC Best Cocktails of 2010! Hit the link below and check out the other fantastic bars and cocktails on the Tasting Table list!
Is the Martinez the new Manhattan? Time will tell. If so, this heady rum-and-sherry-based riff on the Jerry Thomas original–courtesy of the bar that helped make Cobble Hill one of the best cocktail crawls in Brooklyn, if not the entire city–deserves to be remembered as one of the first. Even if its name will fill every Yankees fan’s soul with hatred.
1½ ounces Ron Zacapa 23-year-old rum
¾ ounce sweet vermouth
½ ounce Pedro Ximenez sherry
2 dashes Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters
1 lime twist, for garnish
In a pint glass, combine the rum, vermouth, sherry and bitters. Fill with ice and stir briskly until chilled. Strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe, garnish with the lime twist and serve.
210 Smith St., Brooklyn, NY 11201
