“This cocktail was created by Del Pedro, proprietor of Tooker Alley, Brooklyn.  Del Pedro was an important, early pioneer of the most recent incarnation of the craft cocktail movement. Sorel Liqueur adds a touch of Caribbean spice to this classic cocktail.” Jackie Summers, Sorel Liqueur, Brooklyn, USA

Recipe Adapted from the book Brooklyn Spirits: Craft Distilling and Cocktails from the World’s Hippest Borough by Peter Thomas Fornatale.
