    POSTED January 22, 2019
     

Atop the new Pod Brooklyn is RFTP, a bar and lounge with views of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood and the Manhattan skyline. Much like the Pod Hotels brand, RFTP is modern, minimal and cool. With a zinc bar and cushioned wooden “banquettes,” the space can host private events for up to 200 guests.

INGREDIENTS:
—1.5 oz. Hendrick’s Gin
—lemonade
—cucumber
—mint leaves
—soda water

DIRECTIONS:
In a glass, take a handful of mint and tear leaves apart to release the oils and aroma. Add slices of cucumber and ice. Pour gin and top with lemonade. Finish with a splash of soda. Serve and enjoy
