Make This Red Hook Cocktail Tonight

A wonderful cocktail recipe from the dearly departed Trans Am.

Beloved Vancouver bar Trans Am may have done its final parking lot donut, but that doesn’t mean we don’t find ourselves looking back fondly at the place (and keep our fingers crossed for owner Gianmarco Colannino’s next venture). In the interim we will shake (or stir) up this cocktail recipe he shared with us last spring.

Read Giannmarco Colannino’s Foodie of the Year profile in our sister publication, Western Living, here and then grab your cocktail shaker. We’re making Red Hooks, a relative of the Manhattan and Brooklyn cocktails.

Red Hook Cocktail from Trans Am

2 oz Rittenhouse Rye
½ oz Punt e Mes
½ oz Maraschino

Combine ingredients in mixing glass, stir and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with maraschino cherry.
