At one point the most famous cocktail in the world, the Manhattan is a staple in the cocktail world. Named after the bar it was invented in, the Manhattan is a pure whiskey cocktail that is easy to make and even easier to take down. Oh BTW, it’s not a Manhattan if it isn’t rye. No, bourbon doesn’t make it better.
Ever wish you had a Negroni but without the gin taste? Well you really should’ve wished for a million dollars instead but, hey, at least this wish was granted. The Boulevardier results in a warmer experience with a smokier aftertaste due to having Rye instead of gin.
It's been whispered that the drink, traditionally made with sugar syrup and mint, was once cherished for its medicinal properties and was used by farmers for a jolt akin to coffee before they took the fields in the morning. As we now know, the ginger mint julep became the official drink of the Kentucky Derby in 1938. Now, we're going to take this Derby favorite and scale it to ten because, just like at the Derby, you should be enjoying this drink with friends meanwhile being entertained.
Did you ever want to create a cocktail that would make your friends impressed, even your “alcohol-critic” friend who’s a part-time bartender at the local Cheesecake Factory? Look no further than the Raspberry Gin Rickey (Rickey for short).
