Love bourbon, so any good cocktail made with it usually makes me happy. This one’s delicious and a little sweet – though not overly so – due to said bourbon and some maple syrup.
Such a pretty party for the launch last night!
Town and Country yummy cocktail and gorge party @tandcmag vine.co/v/b3LP0WO9bqg

I’m a HUGE Bourbon fan. If you want to try something awesome, try what’s called Manhattan Italiano: Bourbon + Cardamaro. Cardamaro is a great Amaro. Make it a little more interesting and add a splash of Ginger Beer.
Wow, that sounds amazing! The amaro would balance out the sweet bourbon.
Yeah, you can really use any amaro you’d like. Cardamaro happens to be not so much sweeter, but less bitter than others. It’s similar to Miletti or Montenegro if you’re familiar, but you can also add some nice lemon zest to cut it down to little bit of sweetness.
At least they used good bourbon. Could make a huge diff in the recipe otherwise. Interesting cocktail!
Hmmm…I wonder what that would be like with Cabin Fever (Maple flavored whiskey). Ohhh, and you could use barrel aged maple syrup too! Yum. Might have to give that a try.
That party looks great and thanks for the recipe. I love that bourbon and was just talking about it last night.
Bulleit is yummy!
When you’re in Manhattan, be sure to check out the Flatiron Room. Live Jazz, excellent bar staff and an extensive selection of Bourbons. http://www.theflatironroom.com/whiskey/
sounds awesome – cheers!
This looks like an amazing twist on a Manhattan. I think I am going to have to create similar recipe using more accessible/affordable ingredients on http://brokeandthirsty.com
Your photographs are great – the give an amazing sense of place.
