An added detail: this cocktail was created by Tim Miner. I posted the photo on Instagram and he replied that this was the last drink he put on the menu at the Jakewalk before leaving to tend bar at the newly opened Long Island Bar on Atlantic Ave. Incidentally a must-stop for my next visit to Brooklyn.

Detail added. Long Island Bar is Toby Cecchini's new project, which would make it a must-stop even if Tim Miner's drink weren't so good. Incidentally, Eric, can I put your picture of the drink up on KC?

Absolutely, I was going to suggest using my photo but didn't want to get all up in your business. (Also, not to get further up in your business but I just took a glance at the recipe card in my wallet and it says maple syrup and not liqueur. Sorry for my constant nitpicking corrections.) I hadn't heard of the Long Island Bar until Tim mentioned it to me, but the funny thing is I was staying with my friend on Atlantic Avenue exactly one block up from the bar on the next corner. Next time I'm (we're?) totally going there.

Damn you KC autocorrect.
