Manhattan East

Manhattan East cocktail with bourbon, ginger liqueur, sake, and Peychaud's bitters

The Manhattan East bears only the most passing resemblance to the classic Manhattan cocktail, and yet it’s just as comforting and delightful. Invented by legend Dale DeGroff, it’s a brilliant pairing of bourbon, sake, and ginger liqueur. Sake plays the role of vermouth here, and it’s an inspired choice; it imbues the drink with a velvety body and softens the edges of the bourbon’s woodiness and the spice of ginger liqueur and Peychaud’s bitters.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
