Nutcracker, oh nutcracker. Your legend lives on. (n.h.)
We last spoke of the Mighty Nutcracker here. I’d like to say that since then, I’ve been to the birthplace (allegedly) of the still popular drink. It was an honor and a pleasure to soak up some history in the very place that has been selling them since at least 1994. Those of you who frequent that place in Brooklyn, know exactly what I’m talking about.
Its spring once again and the Mighty Nutcracker continues to intrigue, inspire and instigate debates. One of the biggest debates is what goes into a nutcracker drink? What does it consist of?? I’ve heard countless wrong recipes that come close, but don’t get the cigar.
Check the videos below for examples of varying recipes of the hood classic. Their enthusiasm is great and they may have created some good drinks, but they did not recreate the Nutcracker. Try at your own risk.
