Reverse Manhattan

Reverse Manhattan with sweet vermouth, rye whiskey, and bitters

The Reverse Manhattan is a clever inversion of a classic recipe, with sweet vermouth taking center stage and rye (or bourbon) playing second fiddle. It’s an amazing exploration of all the complex flavors of vermouth. As with all vermouth-forward cocktails, make sure you have fresh stuff; old vermouth has a tendency to taste more oxidized and metallic.

Aromatic bitters are the standard, but you can bring out some different qualities of the vermouth with various bitters substitutions. Chocoloate bitters bring out the vanilla notes of a vermouth like Carpano Antica, while spiced mole or cardamom bitters highlight baking-spice flavors.

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!
