The Red Hook is a cross between a Brooklyn and Manhattan, named after the former’s village-like neighborhood. It combines rye whiskey, Punt E Mes (a bitter Italian vermouth), and maraschino liqueur. It’s boozy, dry, with a hint of sweetness and can be enjoyed up or on the rocks.
The drink was created by Enzo Errico in 2003 during his time at Milk & Honey. While there have been many riffs on the Manhattan, Errico’s has proven to be one of the more enduring modern variations. It’s flavor is well-balanced, strong, and complex, earning it a place on many menus across the country.
