Five Boroughs Cocktails

OK, so, a buddy of mine and I are about to embark upon a quest to find the best five boroughs cocktails in all of the five boroughs. I'm taking suggestions on locales for the best place in Brooklyn to have a Brooklyn, and the finest Staten Island on Staten Island.

  1. You might want to post on the Outer Boroughs board, as this has been moved to The Best board.

    I think you'll be able to get 80% of the way for your quest but not really. Manhattan, Bronx, and Brooklyn cocktails are fairly well known.

    There's no Queens cocktail, but the Savoy lists an Astoria cocktail, which is essentially a gin Martini. For that, I'd try Dutch Kills, maybe.

    There's no classic cocktail named Staten Island AFAIK.
