Choosing Whiskey for a Manhattan
Any type of cocktail will have a flexible recipe, but the specifics is what makes an instance of that kind of cocktail. That’s obvious. What isn’t so obvious is why one, for example, might use a particular Bourbon or Rye or other type of American Whiskey in his or her Manhattan. While this has something to do with how much you might like a specific whiskey, other factors come into play, too, and this TalkTails looks at liquor characteristics to consider when shaping a drink more to your liking. Five cocktail tastes, of the same recipe, except different whiskey. And noshes from the kitchen of Number Ten.
