Holiday Manhattan Reviews

  • This recipe reads like that for a very sweet Manhattan. I scaled it down to one drink and as promisedit WAS very sweet, so not fair of me to judge. (The hot water is there to melt the sugar, I imagine). If you omit the sugar and sub grenadine (maraschino cherry "juice") that actually might lesson the toothache factor. Im a sucker for a Bourbon Manhattan so this is a fun recipe to toy with

  • The hubs....aka the Manhattan King....loved it. The bitters do help with the extra sugar. Added extra cherry juice, just for his personal preference.
