It’s the last of our Manhattan Mondays, and today we’re featuring The Civil War variation to the manhattan. This manhattan variation features a bourbon, but you can use a rye whiskey if you prefer.

We had to approximate the taste of Cocchi Sweet Vermouth di Torino, since we can’t get it, so we kinda play some guesswork on this one, but it comes out great.
