Today’s classic cocktail comes to us straight from the nineteen-teens, and trust us that when you taste it you will feel like you are sitting in a horse and buggy, trotting down a dirt road in old New York.
We think it has been well established by now that we here at The Woman At The Bar love whiskey. Specifically, American whiskey — aka, bourbon and rye. One of the frist drinks that turned us on to this delectable stuff was the classic Whiskey Sour, so it’s probably time that we cover that on the blog, don’t you think?
To start this special holiday weekend off, we are going to recap the coverage we have done on our favorite liqueurs, and give you a handy dandy list ranked in order of importance so you can prioritize your home bar purchases!
When we started to plan out what we would focus on for this week’s liquor spotlight we initially dismissed Luxardo simply because we assumed we had already covered it in the past. When we discovered upon further investigation that no, we had NOT ever covered the liqueur in-depth we were both shocked and appalled — and we knew that this slight had to be rectified immediately.
So lets talk about Luxardo, maraschino cherries, and why you shouldn’t have one without the other!
For this weel’s Throwback Thursday Classic Cocktail we are diving deep to bring you a recipe for one of the most beloved cocktails of all : The Manhattan.
Now, although Manhattan recipes are a dime a dozen on the interwebs, we (and by “we” we mean KellyAtTheBar and GaryAtTheBar) have spent hours toiling away with different recipes, tweaking ingredients, and painstakingly taste testing, to make sure we bring you The Best of The Best. It’s a tough gig, but someone has to do it…
So, without further ado, we give you, The Manhattan Recipe To End All Manhattan Recipes!
Happy Thursday, everyone! This week’s Throwback Thursday Classic Cocktail is just about as classic as you can get: The Old Fashioned.
But don’t let the name fool you! We here at The Woman At The Bar have spent countless hours refining the best of the best version of this delectable little drink, and because we love you so much, we have decided to share our secret recipe with you. Are you ready? No, really, you should probably sit down first. Okay, ready now? Great. Here we go…
