Sometimes you want to dress your bourbon up a little. Or maybe you have friends who don’t like to drink it straight. No matter the reason, I’m going to be collecting cocktail recipes for you. Some will be simple and some will be complicated, but they will all be worth the effort. Cheers!
I have been working since early 2017 on a Manhattan study with Rosemary Miller. We are breaking down our favorite cocktail, the Manhattan, into parts and examining how they work together and which ingredients comprise our favorite version. Here are the parts we have published on BourbonVeach.com:
Part 1: Barefoot Manhattans: Bourbon or Rye?
Part 2: Barefoot Manhattans: The Right Rye
Part 3: Barefoot Manhattans: French Versus Italian Vermouth
Part 4: Barefoot Manhattans: French Vermouth
Part 5: Barefoot Manhattans: Vermouth Battle Royale
Part 6: Barefoot Manhattans: Shaken or Stirred
Part 7: Barefoot Manhattans: The Bitter Truth
