BKW bartenders Nicole Kanev and Wesley Straton have created seven Bowie-inspired cocktails in celebration of Brooklyn museum and their “David Bowie is” exhibition. Working to capture the icons creative incarnations in each individual drink we’re sure you’ll agree they deserve a magic dance. Here are our favourite two for Oh! you pretty things, so this weekend Lets dance and be rebel rebels:

Ziggy Stardust: Sparkling wine, gin, clarified lemon juice, thyme syrup & garnished with an orange jelly star
