the silver screen cocktail

When we asked Hunter’s in Brooklyn for a drink suggestion we might serve at an Oscars party, we knew that we’d receive a delicious recipe. What we didn’t anticipate was how far the man behind the bar, Liam, would take our request and run with it. The ingredients of his concept cocktail all make reference to locations featured in this year’s nominated films. Let’s just say there is no culture clash going on here – the blend of flavors is unusual and amazing.
