Midtown Girl by Amy Chandra - Spring Manhattan Cocktail

The traditional Manhattan is an MG fav all year round. But with the warmer months approaching, we’ve come up with a lighter, fresher take on the classic. Check out MG’s ‘Spring Manhattan’ cocktail recipe below…

‘ The Spring Manhattan’ recipe:

  • 1 ounce of bourbon (MG’s fav is Four Roses)
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 3 crushed strawberries
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 1 ounce of sparkling water/seltzer
Combine bourbon, lemon  juice & crushed strawberries with ice and shake. Pour in a gorgeous glass, top off with sparkling water & garnish with a strawberry or lemon wedge. For extra zing, feel free to add a dash of bitters. 
MG Tip: Pre-cut and muddle the strawberries & lemon beforehand, that way you can spend less time making cocktails and more time with your fabulush guests.
