Another testament to Williamsburg’s mixology microcosm (and maybe one of its progenitors), Huckleberry Bar opened in 2007 and has since settled quite comfortably into the status of “neighborhood favorite.”  Not that anyone at, or specifically behind, the bar is getting too comfortable; as long as Huckleberry has been in its casual, relaxed East Williamsburg space, the menu has been evolving. Seasonal emphasis and creativity reign supreme (on cocktail and small plates menu alike). Mixologist Ian Hardie’s Foreman Twig is an excellent savory cocktail—among a few we’ve tasted this year—balancing the fruitiness of homemade beet syrup and Framboise with fresh lime juice and a bracing salt solution, plus a healthy dose of Old Overholt Rye. And the I’ll Have What She’s Having proves that the whole really can transcend the sum of its parts, in this case Gordon’s Gin, Aperol, and St. Germain.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Foreman Twig: Old Overholt Rye Whiskey, Homemade Beet Syrup, Framboise Liqueur, Lime, and Salt Solution
  • Lewis and Clark: Zubrowka Vodka, Apple and Pear Puree, Ommegang Abbey Ale, Lemon, and Honey
