About this Cocktail

From the PDT book. I'm board with Manhattans. This is a refreshing break.

  • 1.5 oz Four Roses Single Barrel
  • .75 oz Carpano Antica
  • .75 oz Campari
  • 2 Dashes Bittermans Xocolatl Mole
  • 2 Luxardo Cherries Garnish

Stirred & served over ice. PDT calls for Elijah Craig 12 year. I look forward to trying this with Whistle Pig Rye or Masterson's Rye - as that's how I usually drink a Manhattan.

    Worked just fine with Weller bourbon... Finally I can make a distinctive manhattan-esque drink! Thank you!
  • Leroy Palestine
    Damn, that's embarrassing, never heard of this before...
  • Tom Lyberg
    Works beautifully with the Elijah Craig.

    Complete the following naming. An XXX is to a Boulevardier as a Valentino is to a Negroni? The Valentino is 2oz Gin, 0.5oz Campari, 0.5oz Red Vermouth in a martini glass. The Left Hand is part way there. Take it to that next stage and it still works, it just doesn't appear to have a name.

    Neo-classic. Great cocktail.

    Think this is a Sasha Petraske cocktail (Milk & Honey).
