Trainspotter Thomas Newcomb

“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.

60 ml (2 oz) Dickel Ryetrainspotter

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.

    Hey, I may be mistaken, but it looks like this picture was taken at The Cellar in Fullerton. Is this cocktail definitely at The Continental Room?
