AKA:

New Orleans Manhattan

Review:

Old-school, but approachably so. Dry and herbal. A great aperitif.

Variant:

Delmonico

History:

This recipe is faithful to the first known reference to this cocktail in George J. Kappeler's 1895 Modern American Drinks.

In his 1931 book Old Waldorf Bar Days, Albert Stevens Crockett notes of this drink, "Named after a school for young men, whose site is contiguous to the Charles River, in a suburb of Boston. Alumni who drunk it sometimes lost the 'Harvard accent'."

Our Manhattan cocktail page features a detailed history and other variants.
