Adapted from a recipe by Thomas Newcomb, The Continental Room, Fullerton, CA.
“This original cocktail is my twist on the classic Brooklyn cocktail. The name has no direct relevance to the cocktail but hey, Trainspotting was/is an amazing film so there.” Thomas Newcomb.
22.5 ml (.75 oz) St. Germain
15 ml (.5 oz) Cherry Heering
7.5 ml (.25 oz) Fernet Branca
1 Grapefruit twist, as garnish
Stir over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: Once again, it’s the Fernet that brings everything together in this drink, and the Dickel Rye provides a sturdy backbone—nicely done, Thomas.
