After five years of setting the tone for cocktail standards in the San Antonio area, The Brooklynite is months away from relocating to a new home. But until then, there’s still time to enjoy expertly made cocktails at 516 Brooklyn Ave.
Bartender Rachel Rainwater leaned into the chocolatey nature of the Brandy Alexander while catering to the dairy-averse. Using a vegan chocolate Ripple pea milk, the Brandy Frapp alludes to Terry’s milk chocolate orange balls, or at the very least an orange mocha frappuccino you can enjoy with friends.
