New Orleans Manhattan

Comment:

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

Variant:

Delmonico (with Angostura in place of orange bitters).

Origin:

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'.”
