Sophisticated Cocktails in Brooklyn

I'm searching for a few suggestions for sophisticated cocktails in Brooklyn. I love Belgian beer and red wine but as the weather gets cooler looking for interesting cocktails also.
Bluestone on Columbia? original cocktails made by the bartender....raspberry limeade is one of them...if i remember correctly...had a few :)...
At Franny's, all the bartenders are exceptionally creative and good -- those tasty drinks go down all-too-easily, and that's a compliment. Bartender Karen -- Kay-ron the Destroyer -- made a vodka rosemary lemonade over the summer that was thirst-quenchingly refreshing and perfectly balanced, just the right amount of rosemary, and, to quote that silly Country Time commercial from days of yore, "not too tart, not too sweet." And their "Brooklyn" -- the Kings County answer to the Manhattan -- is divine. They use their own homemade lemon sour in place of vermouth, and it is perfect on a cold, wintry day. They also have a great wine list, both by the bottle and by the glass. . .
Applewood has a great Fall cocktail menu...
Maple Manhattan - Maker's Mark, Vermont maple syrup, Cardomom vodka, bitters
Pumpkin Cream Soda - Gosling's dark rum, pumpkin puree, vanilla-sugar rim
Spiced Pear whiskey sour - Jack Daniels, pear puree, spiced syrup
