Smoky Goodnight Moon Review

Meet the Smoky Goodnight Moon – a grown-up nightcap inspired by the beloved childhood story, only available at Alice’s Arbor in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

Don’t let the name fool you, this smooth swill is no sleeper. It consists of all-star pairings of bourbon, spiced rum, and honey, topped off with a splash of lavender. The thoughtful balance of flavors create an inviting sipper, sure to please an array tastes.

Plus, as if that wasn’t enough to wet your whistle, there’s has an off-menu element… smoke! The smoke comes from a wooden cedar board which is scorched (by a torch!) and then covered by a lowball glass to capture the smoky goodness. Then, the shaken cocktail is poured into the glass releasing a seductive cedar aroma. The on-menu version is Goodnight Moon, but if you want the smoky wow-factor, just ask!
