What better way to celebrate a 100th birthday than to bounce into four of Brooklyn Heights’s best bars and drink a special cocktail designed just for the occasion?
On Aug. 5, the Brooklyn Heights Association invites you to do just that to mark the venerable community group’s centennial year.
Along the crawl, you’ll enjoy the “Height’s Hundredth Hellenic Punch,” a nod to the association’s centennial, comprised of Hayman’s Old Tom Gin, mint-infused honey syrup, fresh lemon and lime juice, at the Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar on Henry Street.
Then it’s on to Armando’s on Montague Street, where you can sip a “Promenade Prosecco Punch,” a blend of Prosecco, Aperol and club soda.
After the hike to Atlantic Avenue, cool off from the crawl at the Waterfront Ale House with an “Atlantic Antic Maker’s Mark Mojito,” a sweet summer cocktail made with rum, ginger ale, pomegranate juice and maraschino.
A block away at the Roebling Inn, you’ll quench your thirst from walking a block with a “Brooklyn Bridge Buzz,” a bubbly blend of cherry rum with cranberry juice and lime.
“It’s a tart cherry and cranberry drink, so quite refreshing for the summer time,” said Jason Furlani, owner of the Atlantic Avenue bar, “It’s delicious.”
The venues have also paired their concoctions with some hors d’oeuvre, from hot dogs to baked clams, so you’re not drinking on an empty stomach.
Brooklyn Heights pub crawl, starting at Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar [50 Henry St. at Cranberry Street, (718) 855-5595] at 7:30 pm on Aug. 5. Tickets $25, which includes food and drink. RSVP required to rsvp@auste
