Red Moon Over Manhattan

Red Moon Over Manhattan cocktail with wine, bourbon, simple syrup and orange peel

Red wine is an under-utilized ingredient in cocktails, but food blogger Eden Passante of Sugar and Charm is making up for it with her recipe for the Red Moon Over Manhattan, a riff on the classic Manhattan.

Passante doesn’t specify a varietal, but we’ve tried with everything from Pinot Noir to Shiraz and it’s fantastic every time.

We’re not usually sticklers about ice, but a great big sphere of ice peeking out from the deep red “sky” is pretty much a requirement – it’s too beautiful to do it any other way if you’ve got ice spheres on hand.

Ingredients

Instructions

Rub the orange peel around the lip of a short glass, and discard the peel. Add a big sphere of ice to the glass, or just fill it with ice cubes. Shake all ingredients with ice, and strain into the glass. Garnish with some brandied cherries.

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.
