Hickory Smoked Manhattan
I got this idea from a place in Toronto called BarChef, where they serve a Manhattan that has been infused with smoke. After having it there, I knew I had to try and replicate it at home. Give this take on a classic Manhattan a try yourself! In order to make the Manhattan Smoked, you’ll need the smoking gun. Don’t worry if you don’t have one, this recipe will still work great without the smoke.
- 2 oz Rye
- 1 oz sweet vermouth
- 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
- In a mixing glass, combine all of the ingredients. Insert the tube of the smoking gun into the glass and cover with plastic wrap forming a seal. Using hickory wood chips, light the smoker and fill glass with smoke. Allow it to infuse for 5 minutes then release.
- Fill the glass with ice and stir continuously for 1 minute
- Strain into a chilled glass. I like to pour the cocktail over a large ice cube.
