13 new fall cocktails at Grand Army in Boerum Hill are paying homage to some the world’s most famous cats, including several pop culture sensations. The drinks created by Robby Dow (beverage director) and Ally Marrone (head bartender) include autumnal takes on spritzes, pisco punches, old fashioneds, martinis, negronis and even a fall-inspired colada. Here are some of them:
