brookyln sling

2 oz Broker's Gin (Beefeater)
2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino
3 dash Angostura Bitters
2 dash Grenadine (1/4 oz)

Shake with ice, strain into an 8 oz glass, add ice, and garnish with a lime wheel.
After my work shift two Fridays ago, I reached for Carey Jones' Brooklyn Bartender book and stumbled upon the Brooklyn Sling. The recipe was John Bush's riff on the Singapore Sling that he created at Talde, although the combination reminded me more at first of a gin-based Mary Pickford. Once prepared, the Brooklyn Sling brought lime and clove aromas to the nose that later offered more pineapple notes. Next, lime, berry, and pineapple on the sip led into gin, pineapple, nutty Maraschino, allspice, and cinnamon on the swallow.
