New Orleans Manhattan


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


Delmonico (with Angostura in place of orange bitters).


Recipe adapted from 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'."
