A nod to the classic Manhattan with a southern twist. A wonderful cocktail to pair with traditional hors d’oeuvres or appetizer course.
2 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye Whiskey
1/2 oz Grand Marnier Cordon Rogue
1/4 oz Broadbent Rainwater Madeira
1 wedge of orange
1 wedge of lemon
Build all spirits in a mixing glass. Squeeze and drop in both lemon and orange wedges. Add ice and stir well. Strain into a martini glass or coupe. Express oil of an orange twist into glass and/or onto the rim of glass and use twist as garnish.
