Aloha from Brooklyn!
(Brooklyn Gin)
The fellas at Brooklyn Gin love a good umbrella drink, and they found that this little number cuts through the heat of a long New York summer like no other. A healthy backbone of Brooklyn Gin, with a bit of fresh pineapple and lime, along with a bit of spice and nuttiness, is just the thing when the mercury is high. They'll put their feet up, and have three.

.5 oz fresh lime juice
.5 oz blue curacao
.25 oz cinnamon bark syrup
