Creation of NY bartender Sam Ross (also responsible for the modern classic smokey, honey, whiskey cocktail, the Penicillin). The ideal aperitivo and super easy to make with 4 ingredients in equal parts.
The quintessential classic cocktail comprising of only 3 ingredients, rye whiskey, sweet vermouth (also known as Italian vermouth) and Angostura bitters. Experiment with different vermouth’s to make your perfect Manhattan.
The Jasmine’s pretty pink hue gives the illusion that it will be quite a sweet drink and the addition of Campari gives the impression it will be bitter but in fact it sits right in the middle. Not sweet, barely bitter and to be honest, leaves me underwhelmed.
