What’s the story with the Manhattan? Well… truth be told it’s complicated, and it’s usually pretty hard to find the truth buried inside all the tall tales, too. I was joined this week by friend, and fellow beer-geek Andy Foltz to take an initial dive into what I expect will be many dives into The Manhattan Cocktail.
We explore this week not just what’s in the drink, but take a peek at the history of it too – we play around with a couple ingredients and of course have a couple manhattans of our own to set the stage.
Stay tuned – we’re not done talking about this one… there’s a lot to say!
