Submitted by: Ryan Magarian with Chad Solomon and Christy Pope
Description:A tough-guy drink named for a tough Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn, this is a descendant of the Brooklyn cocktail, a tipple which calls for Amer Picon, a rare liqueur. This variation substitutes Cynar, a magnificently complex Italian apéritif flavored with artichoke. 
Ingredients: 2 ounces rye whiskey (preferably 100 proof)
1 ounce dry vermouth
2 teaspoons maraschino liqueur (preferably Luxardo)
1 teaspoon Cynar
Preparation: Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir swiftly and thoroughly, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
