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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
