Needed a motherfucken perfect Rye Manhattan, so checked out the larder. Got Templeton Rye, Dolin dry vermouth, and Angostura bitters, but no fucken sweet vermouth. Only sweet booze I got is some Feist ruby port. Checked with my go-to cocktail mavens, Doc Becca and Rob the Bartender, and they agreed that it was reasonable to sub a bit of port for the usual sweet vermouth.
Here’s the ingredients:
Used three shots rye, one shot dry vermouth, half shot port, and a few drops of bitters.
In the shaker with ice.
Shaken and strained! Tastes fucken outstanding! The only thing missing is some goddamn cheeries!
