There’s a sexy new kid on the block in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. As a previous brothel, now turned cocktail lounge, Barely Disfigured has created quite a delicious stir since November 2017. Challenging the conventions of classic French cocktails, ‘Barely’ serves modern takes on the traditional swills. One such drink is Don’t Give Up the Ship: a combination of gin, Fernet (an Italian amaro or bitter), and sweet vermouth. At first sip, a burst of citrus greets you. Then, the harmonious blend of gin, bitter sweet fernet, and orange bitters shines together for a smooth finish. This refreshing treat is one, you definitely wouldn’t want to give up.
