With reverse cocktails gaining popularity, we take a look at the Reverse Manhattan.
The Reverse Manhattan is one of the new ways of drinking vermouth. The recipe switches the ratio of rye whiskey to vermouth and yields a lower alcohol drink. It’s a lighter take on the original Manhattan and makes for a delicious cocktail that makes the sweet vermouth shine.
Always make sure you use fresh vermouth as it does go off once it’s been opened for some time, and store the bottle in the fridge.
The Reverse Manhattan is an easy, 3 ingredient cocktail that can be made at home and served to guests at a cocktail party or as a pre-dinner drink.
