The Brooklyn cocktail finds a nice balance between the sweetness of maraschino liqueur and a nice dry vermouth (instead of the sweet vermouth used in a Manhattan), making it a delicious twist on the original. And just like its namesake, this cocktail has been getting more and more popular over the last few years.
