Extra Añejo Manhattan [Cocktail Recipe]

In this Extra Añejo Manhattan, “the richness of Patrón Extra Añejo pairs well with a Spanish vermouth, making for a well-rounded and more complex version of the Manhattan,” explains Robert Freeman, bartender at Husk Restaurant in Savannah, Georgia.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz. Patrón Extra Añejo (or other aged tequila)
  • 1 oz. Yzaguirre Rojo Reserva vermouth (or other sweet Spanish vermouth)
  • 2 dashes Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
  • Orange peel
  • Garnish: brandied cherry

DIRECTIONS

Mix tequila, vermouth, and bitters in a mixing glass with ice and stir about 40 times. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and squeeze an orange peel over the drink to release the oils. Garnish with a brandied cherry on a cocktail pick.
