Show Notes for Episode 32 - Modern Folklore #5

May 26, 2019

Here's where we tell you how to find the recipe for Manhattan, the tales we told, and the podcast we mentioned!


The Booze:

-2 oz bourbon (we’re using bourbon, but you could use rye whiskey if you prefer)
-1 oz sweet vermouth
-2 dashes of bitters

Pour bourbon, vermouth, and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir well and strain into glass, garnish with a cherry or orange peel. The flavor of this drink can really change depending on the types of bourbon and vermouth you use, so we recommend experimenting. We’re using Maker’s Mark and Carpano Antica Formula (an Italian Vermouth). Manhattans were originally made with rye but the bourbon version has risen in popularity, and was recommended to us by our resident cocktail expert, Anubis.
