Little Apple

Don't let the name fool you. There's no apple in this cocktail! 

A slight modification to the classic Manhattan, the Little Apple cocktail uses Boot Hill Distillery White Whiskey, and takes its name from the hometown of our three owners' Alma Mater - Manhattan, Kansas. 

  • 2 oz Boot Hill Distillery White Whiskey
  • 1 oz Carpano Antica Formula Sweet Vermouth
  • 4 to 5 healthy dashes Angostura Orange Bitters
  • Orange twist to garnish

Combine all the ingredients except the orange twist in a cocktail shaker and fill with large, cubed ice. 

Shake thoroughly (at least 20 seconds), and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Allow some of the smaller chunks of ice through the strainer to create a lovely layer of ice over the top of the cocktail. 

Garnish with the orange peel and serve.
