The Irish Manhattan

The world’s most iconic skyline owes a great deal to a strong band of Irish immigrants, who made the journey from Ireland to New York in search of work. These men welded and riveted the towering skyscrapers of Manhattan, earning the money that would soon take their families along the same Atlantic journey and eternally embed them in the fabric of New York. This one’s for them, an American classic that expresses itself in a truly Irish fashion.

The serve

Just south of the Long Island Ice Tea you’ll find the ‘Manhattan’, just east of which you’ll find the Irish Manhattan. Despite the bitters adding to the inherent spice in the Tullamore D.E.W, it’s a very smooth and approachable drink that reflects the Irish experience. Combining ingredients from all over the world, it expresses itself in a distinctively Irish way.

Method

  • Stir 50ml Tullamore D.E.W. Original, 15ml Sweet Vermouth, 5ml Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur and dashes of Angostura and Orange Bitters together quickly over ice.
  • Pour into a chilled coupette glass, zest an orange twist over surface of drink, spiral and drop in to the glass
  • Garnish with Maraschino Cherry
