French Manhattan | Cocktail Party

French Manhattan

The classic Manhattan may well be the most-riffed-upon cocktail in history – and for good reason! The recipe’s simplicity and balance lends itself well to substitutions and twists, and this French Manhattan is one of our favorites.

It’s definitely sweeter than a typical Manhattan, with an orange curaçao like Grand Marnier (or a triple sec like Cointreau, in a pinch) offering an extra dimension of citrus fragrance. It’s smoother, too, with cognac bringing a more muted woodiness than bourbon or rye.

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
