Single-origin espresso stalwarts Sweetleaf will collaborate with cocktail maestro Richard Boccato of Dutch Kills on a third Sweetleaf that will open next month at 46-15 Center Boulevard in Long Island City, Diner’s Journal reports. Sweetleaf already has one shop in Queens, and a second that opened in Williamsburg last year. The new location will not only be a serious coffee bar by day and bar-bar by night, but will also serve cocktails that combine the best of both worlds, such as the Long Island City Special, which, made with blackstrap rum, coffee liqueur, agave, and seltzer, seems like a spot-on update of the classic Manhattan Special soda.
