    Well Crafted Manhattan Contest

    If you love making Manhattans and creating new recipes...Woodford Reserve and Esquire have teamed up to challenge bartenders and "at-home mixologists" to create the Well Crafted Manhattan.

    I invite you to take a look at that link for details, there are some great prizes like a trip to NYC, and whether you enter or not, I'd love to see your favorite Manhattan recipes posted here!

    Cheers!

    the creation that won last year was the Cider Manhattan with a cider reduction

    And Ethan, I enjoyed watching your White Manhattan Cocktail Video, good stuff. You should do a Woodford one and submit!

    mmm... cider reduction...

    Gotta say I've been tempted... half the fun of making one... is practice...

    Thanks for the comments by the way and the kind words, perhaps I'll give the contest a shot.

    Cheers.

    Well Crafted.

    I'd like to think that all of mine are. Now if someone else would think so that's okay but...

    Not with Woodford Resereve.

    Can I be the curmudgeon and ask if the Manhattan is on the trail to be bastardized like the martini?

    No need to. It has already happened.
