AKA:

Churchill Manhattan

Review:

Whisky usually sits better with lemon rather than lime, but I've tried both in this recipe and lime's distinctive zesty freshness adds to this cocktail, so long as you go easy. Some use as much as 15ml lime but I view 10ml as the limit and 5ml ideal.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Joe Gilmore at The American Bar at London's Savoy Hotel in honour of Winston Churchill, whose mother is often wrongly said to have been present at the Manhattan cocktail's inception.
