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.
