About this Cocktail

19/12/14 @demonbitters original

I didn't want the richness of a sweet Manhattan nor the austerity of a dry Manhattan and so picked some modifiers that would add depth of flavour and bitterness without too much sweetness. As it happened all three began with an S which led me to the name. A simple drink with a complex flavour profile and a beautiful colour thanks to the Salers.

  • 2 shots Rye whiskey (Rittenhouse 100)
  • 1/3 shot Suze (gentian aperetif)
  • 1/3 shot Salers Bitters
  • 1/3 shot Manzanilla Sherry

Stir and strain. Three cherries on a cocktail stick and then waft a piece of orange zest around the place.
