Getting Ready for NY

Last night I went to the Four Season here in Miami to see my friend Steve who works there, and chat about life and our summer vacations. He is actually going to Seattle and I told him about my upcoming trip to NY and how excited I am to spend a few weeks over there.

In order to celebrate our vacations he prepared for us a Manhattan (there is no Seattle drink), which is a drink I haven't had in a long time. Anyways, you can prepare your own version with this recipe and feel like you are in some Jazz club in the city listening to some cool music.

Perfect Manhattan Adapted from LeNell Smothers

2ounces Tuthilltown Hudson Manhattan rye whiskey
½ounce sweet vermouth (preferably Vya or Carpano Antica)
½ounce dry vermouth
2dashes of orange bitters
Lemon twist, for garnish.

Stir the liquid ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the twist.

Yield: 1 serving

PS: Remember if you are in the NY area the first weekend of August, some bloggers and I will be getting together for brunch... Let me know if you would like to attend.

Have fun today and have a drink with someone fun!
