The Greenpoint is a variation on the classic Brooklyn cocktail, featuring sweet vermouth and yellow Chartreuse in place of dry vermouth and maraschino liqueur. Created in 2006 by Michael McIlroy at NYC's Milk & Honey bar, it is named after a neighborhood in Brooklyn and features spicy rye whiskey and aromatic and orange bitters. The Greenpoint is just one example of the endless possibilities for variations on the classic Manhattan and Brooklyn cocktails.
