Recipe by Sam Ross, Attaboy NYC, 2018, found in the Bartender’s Choice app.


Sam Ross is co-owner of Attaboy, which occupies the space that Milk & Honey once did on New York’s Lower East Side; he’s recently opened an outpost of the bar in Nashville; and he co-owns Diamond Reef, a tiki bar in Brooklyn. And as if he’s not busy enough, Ross has just recently revamped the app for the first time in 10 years, updating the recipes, including new ones, and it’s better than ever.

The Fort Lauderdale cocktail is described in the app as a “mash up of the Third Man and the Bitter Mai-Tai but in coupe form, Sam Ross loves this drink. “[It’s] the next big thing. Gin, tiki-ish, bitter and sweet. Rookie-of-the-Year written all over this belter.”
