Manhattan Monday

There’s nothing like mixing a cocktail to refresh yourself after a visit to the gym!  I’m surprised I haven’t yet tried this particular Manhattan variation as it falls into the area where I started my cocktail adventure: original post-Prohibition cocktail recipe books.  It’s a good drink, although I wouldn’t necessarily choose it over a straight Manhattan. The flavors are very similar, and to be honest, it’s just a couple steps too many to make it a contender.  Still, not a bad start to the week.  Via Bartender’s Choice app.
