SUNDAY SESH // MANHATTAN

SUNDAY SESH // MANHATTAN

 

This Sunday Sesh we are raising our glasses to the Manhattan!

  

I can't believe we haven't covered this cocktail! One of the famous originals; The Manhattan.

There are many theories to how the Manhattan came about and the most popular of these is that in the early 1880s Dr Iain Marshall came up with the recipe for a party that was held at the Manhattan Club in New York City by Lady Randolph Churchill, Winston’s mother. Many people in the industry now believe that this story is a myth.

Some now think that a man going by the name of ‘Black’ invented the cocktail at the famed Hoffman House in New York City. Whichever story you choose to believe The Manhattan Club still lays claim to the ownership of the recipe to this very day and the cocktail is still widely available in bars, restaurants and cafes throughout the world and is regarded by many bartenders as one of the best cocktails to ever have been served.
