Midnight Manhattan

Mignight Manhattan cocktail with bourbon, amaro, blood orange liqueur, cherry brandy, and orange bitters

The Midnight Manhattan was the winner of the Woodford Reserve’s “Master of the Manhattan” contest back in 2013. Invented by Detroit bartender Travis Fourmont, the recipe drops the traditional sweet vermouth and replaces it with a mixture of cherry brandy, blood orange liqueur, and Averna (an amaro with notes of anise, citrus, and savory herbs).

We can totally see why the Midnight Manhattan won the competition; it’s rich and flavorful, but brighter and more concentrated than the original. At Roast, Fourmont’s restaurant, it’s served with a flamed orange peel – a finishing touch we never skip when we make this recipe.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
