The Heights has the right spirits next week

Jason Furlani of the Roebling Inn shows off his "Brooklyn Bridge Buzz," a tart, refreshing summer cocktail. Try it on a pub crawl of the neighborhood this Aug. 5, or make it at home.

What better way to celebrate a 100th birthday than to bounce into four of Brooklyn Heights’s best bars and drink a special cocktail designed just for the occasion?

On Aug. 5, the Brooklyn Heights Association invites you to do just that to mark the venerable community group’s centennial year.

Along the crawl, you’ll enjoy a “Brooklyn Bridge Buzz” at the Roebling Inn (pictured), a bubbly blend of cherry rum with cranberry juice and lime.

“It’s a tart cherry and cranberry drink, so quite refreshing for the summer time,” said Jason Furlani, owner of the Atlantic Avenue bar, the last stop on the tour.

The venues have also paired their concoctions with some hors d’oeuvre, from hot dogs to baked clams, so you’re not drinking on an empty stomach.

Brooklyn Heights pub crawl, starting at Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar [50 Henry St. at Cranberry Street, (718) 855-5595] at 7:30 pm on Aug. 5. Tickets $25, which includes food and drink. RSVP required to rsvp@austeragency.com. For info, visit www.thebha.org.
