Thirsty in Brooklyn – Three Festive Cocktails

cocktail setIt’s almost New Year’s Eve which means it’s time to start thinking about some fun cocktails.  HiB’s good friend Tim Monaghan is quite the bartender, and he’s compiled a list of his three favorite festive drinks, which he demonstrates in this holiday special: the French 75, Philadelphia Fish House Punch, and Tim’s Gin Toddy. One very cool thing is that so many of these liquors are being produced locally these days – Tim uses Breuckelen Gin, made right here in this fine borough.  Ask your liquor store if they carry any local spirits. From Absinthe to Vodka, you’re bound to find something artisanal.

On a more somber note, shortly after filming this episode, Tim suffered a serioush head injury, and he is still in intensive care.  His family and friends have set up a fund to help contribute to his growing medical expenses.  Please visit Tim’s Fund Page and donate whatever you can.  Every little bit helps for Tim’s faster and complete recovery.

Have a happy and safe New Year, from all of us here at Hungry in Brooklyn!
