How about a coffee cocktail combined with great food to start a magic night in New York City? In this case Blueprint, located in the heart of Park Slope in Brookyln, might be your new favorite place. Focusing on carefully crafted classic and specialty cocktails, Blueprint prepares fresh juices, syrups, bitters and infusions in-house. Beside amazing cocktails you also enjoy delicious food, prepared in a tiny kitchen (I still don’t know how they do it) served by friendly staff in a typical New York lounge atmosphere. Don’t miss the hummus plate served with house baked flatbread and marinated olives or the Blueprint Duck Club, a sandwich. Important to know: happy hour is from 4pm to 7pm (Monday to Friday).
3-2-1 and lift off
After a long day of interviewing interesting coffee people in New York, Jeremy and Andy invited me to taste their coffee cocktail – The Kickstarter – at Blueprint. The name is no understatement. This drink is a real booster with 100% of energy, beautifully flavored with homemade coffee bitters. Thanks to Blueprint I may share the recipe with you: 2oz Goslings black rum, 1/2 oz turbinado sugar syrup, 1 oz fresh pulled espresso and 2 dash of homemade coffee bitters. Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Then express the oils of a lemon twist on top of the drink and discard the twist. Enjoy and lift off!
