Hands down, a Manhattan is one of my favorite drinks. Classy…simple…but actually very complex once you start leaning more. Just by changing the base whiskey, adding a different vermouth, or trying out some new bitters will change the flavor profile so much. The quest to master the Manhattan is like the journey to master your golf swing, a life long journey. – FYI you can get your own barrel on Amazon, we bought ours at Target.
So basically take your Manhattan recipe and multiply it to fit your barrel.
My go to Manhattan recipe is:
2 1/2 oz of bourbon…
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth…
2 dashes of Angostura Bitters.
So for a 2 litter barrel
2200 ml of bourbon…
600ml of Sweet Vermouth…
60 ish dashes of Angostura Bitters.
Age as long as you would like, enjoy. (Sweet spot is around a week or two)
Serve up or over ice with a cherry.
