COCKTAILS: Winters in Manhattan
If there’s one trend that’s too hot for its own good, it’s this return to moonshine. Fortunately, this unaged whiskey, developed by Whiskey veteran, author and master distiller Ian Smiley in conjunction with Will Kehler, Manhattan Moonshine is quite good — plus comes in this pretty bottle.
My friend Sam, the aforementioned former bartender, whipped up this pretty bev, perfect for holiday entertaining:
Winters in Manhattan
- 3 parts Manhattan Moonshine
- 1 part Luxardo
- Muddled simple syrup and fresh cranberries
- Dash of orange bitters
- Splash of Blood Orange soda
Combine in highball glass over ice. Garnish with additional fresh cranberries.
