The Bicycle Thief Cocktail

Originally on the menu at Dutch Kills and created by Zachary Gelnaw-Rubin and Abraham Hawkins, the Bicycle Thief Cocktail became a favorite of New York City bartender Meaghan Dorman. The drink eventually became her staff pick for the “what we are drinking” section of the menu at Raines Law Room. “We love it and always make it for our Negroni Week specials,” Dorman says.
