Best take on a Manhattan I’ve ever had. A kind bartender from a San Diego bar shared this with me a few years back. I’ve been making them for years and only get rave reviews. A bit tedious but worth it. For simplicity, all quantities based on a standard shot glass
1.5 Rye Whiskey (I generally use Bulleit)
.75 Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
1 dash angostura bitters
1 dash peychauds bitters
Stir vigorously in a shaker full of ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Finish with a twisted slice of orange peel.
For the ladies (Di), @Elpresidente, the scotch intake last night on the zoom herf definitely interfered with my certainty on this one but I’ve verified with the wife and this is the Cosmopolitan recipe to try for Di. It’s extremely simple, and I’ve never seen a lady not want another one. Again, in shot glass quantities.
2 Cranberry juice
1 triple sec
shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.
No photos tonight as I’ve elected to lay off the sauce tonight. Maybe make a Manhattan tomorrow night and add. A little too friendly with that Scot named Johnnie last night!
