It’s been a while since I’ve had a #midweekmanhattan post, so I thought it required something a little special. It therefore gives me great pleasure to introduce a new series for House of Bourbon: Breakfast Booze!
A natural progression from our existing tea-infused recipes, this series will branch out to explore other drinks which include traditional breakfast foodstuffs. While we’re not necessarily endorsing the idea that every breakfast should include an dipsological experiment, there is something to be said to raising a Bloody Mary or a Breakfast Martini on special occasions.
The ideal cross-over post to launch a series of drinks featuring popular breakfast ingredients is therefore the Breakfast in Manhattan, a cross between a classic English breakfast Martini and a traditional Manhattan. Perfect for anyone who enjoys an orangey punch to their whiskey cocktails.
To start your day with a breakfast-appropriate Manhattan:
- Stir a teaspoon of marmalade with a large measure of whiskey in a mixing glass until the marmalade has dissolved.
- Add a small measure of sweet vermouth and a sploosh of orange bitters.
- Add ice, stir well and double strain into a martini glass.
- Garnish with a twist of orange.
