If you’re a fan of the Manhattan cocktail, then this recipe is for you! A French take on a New York classic, the American in Paris cocktail adds a touch of black current liqueur (instead of bitters). This is the cocktail for a holiday hostess throwing a glamorous Thanksgiving dinner party.
‘American in Paris’ cocktail recipe:
- 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
- 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
- 1/2 ounce creme de cassis (black current liqueur)
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Combine ingredients with ice and shake. Pour in a pretty glass and garnish with a lemon slice (prettier than a wedge).
