“Milk & Honey bartender Vincenzo Errico created the Red Hook cocktail in 2004, setting off a wave of Brooklyn cocktail variants all named for neighborhoods in the borough,” says Chad Solomon, co-creator of Midnight Rambler in Dallas. “The Bensonhurst is a twist on the classic Brooklyn Cocktail I created in early 2006. I was inspired to create the drink due to the lack of original-formula Amer Picon to make an authentic Brooklyn, so I used Cynar instead.”
