Every cocktail on the new Gage & Tollner menu in Brooklyn was once served in the original incarnation of the restaurant that opened in 1879. Alongside more than a dozen 19th and 20th century classics, the bar team designed the Pink Lady to showcase local gin and unaged apple brandy from Neversink in upstate New York which is shaken with egg whites and housemade grenadine, then topped with a few dashes of Peychaud’s bitters.
