Manhattan MILF



Erudite. Spohisticated.  Long legs in Chanel suit.  Bobbed hair and pearls. Strolling up 5th at 62nd. 

2Oz Hine Cognac
1Oz Carpano Antica Vermouth
Regan's Orange Bitters
Schweppes Soda (Optional)
Garnish with a heart shaped cherry

Stir and serve on ice. Sweet but fleeting.  Don't fall in love because she'll break your heart.

Have not commented in a while... feeling a bit down in the dumps but this looks like a good drink. The Carpano Antica is very tough to get up here.

With this very sweet Manhattan, you could easily sub Matini & Rossi for the Carpano. Great to hear from you OG. You've been missed.

Wow nice drink, I may have to tone down the Cognac, I love the Hine Rare but markets are not what they used to be,

A hot Mama on ice? Tsk tsk

In honor of this post I imbibed a lovely traditional Manhattan this evening; up. The cherry: stoneless. A middle aged woman's delight, right up there with witty posts.
