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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
