Manhattan Bianco 1.000

Max Hirshfeld

May 30, 2007

This variation on the Manhattan -- one of dozens, if not hundreds -- calls for equal parts bourbon and bianco vermouth. Do not confuse the bianco with dry vermouth, which is completely different. Bianco is a style of sweet vermouth.


Servings: 1
Ingredients
  • Ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 1/2 ounces bianco vermouth, preferably Martini & Rossi
  • Lemon peel twist, for garnish

Directions

Fill two-thirds of a cocktail shaker with ice and add the bourbon and vermouth. Stir vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Twist the lemon peel over the drink to release its essence, then drop it in.
