The 36th Vote Barreled ManhattanMADE BY HIGH WEST DISTILLERY IN PARK CITY, UTAH
What to drink? We love to experiment, but we'll always return to the classics. When in doubt, make Mouth's a Manhattan.
Thanks to High West Distillery, there's a standout version at our fingertips. Not only does it start with the best of the best ingredients, like High West's Double Rye! whiskey, it's then aged in a 2-year-old rye whiskey barrel for 120 days until the the rye, vermouth and Angostura bitters have had a chance to cozy up and get to know each other.
Basically, it's like having a top-notch bartender at a super-fancy cocktail bar (the kind that barrel ages its own cocktails), hanging out in your living room.
Why the reference to the 36th vote? High West wanted to celebrate Utah's role as the deciding vote in the repeal of the 18th Amendment (and the end of Prohibition). We'll drink to that.
tip of the tongue
As a general rule, cocktails made with only alcoholic ingredients are stirred and never shaken. So be sure to stir this one over ice before serving (and if you're feeling fancy, you can strain it into a chilled cocktail glass).
