Rye Manhattan Barrel-Aged CocktailMADE BY FLUID DYNAMICS IN UKIAH, CALIFORNIA
REAL SIMPLE SAYS...
"Not sure if you actually like a Manhattan? Try this little guy, which makes two drinks — all you have to do is add bitters and ice. It makes a fun party favor or gift too!"
We’re picky when it comes to cocktails, so we’re usually on the fence about ones that comes pre-batched – but with Fluid Dynamics’ Dry Martini Cocktail, all those silly doubts are put to rest.
This classic Rye Manhattan is a rich mix of Low Gap’s rye whiskey and Quady’s Vya Sweet Vermouth (another Mouth maker) that tastes as fresh as it would if it was mixed right in front of you by a bearded, suspendered bartender. (Hey, we’re based in Brooklyn, people.)
Fluid Dynamics was founded by Hubert Germain-Robin and Ansley Coale, also partners in the famed brandy distiller Germain-Robin. Their recipes take months to develop: experimenting with blends, aging them, making tiny adjustments to get it juuust right... The results are pre-mixed cocktails with such balance and freshness, you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with (thinking about) taking bartending classes in the first place.
All you have to do is chill a glass and add your own dash of bitters (our favorite are Hella Bitter’s Aromatic Bitters, forever and always). To really bring it to life, garnish with an orange rind.
