Session Manhattan | Cocktail Party

Session Manhattan

Session Manhattan with sweet vermouth, rye whiskey, amontillado sherry, dry vermouth, and aromatic bitters

“Session” in a cocktail name typically means that a drink is low proof (or at least lower-proof), and perfect for a long “session” of day-drinking. The Session Manhattan is a perfect example, inverting the classic template and adding some dry amontillado sherry and dry vermouth for a light, drinkable tipple that won’t send you to bed after one glass.

If drinks like this are just your speed, be sure to check out the Session Cocktails book we found it in, from Drew Lazor and the editors of PUNCH magazine.

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.
