A good German friend of mine is here right now in Germany, and I decided to create a cocktail with my Booker's. It's a good bourbon, I think, and not cheap. But I thought... why not? I call it the Mannhattaine (because of the French cassis).
1.5 shots Booker's
0.5 shots Sweet red vermouth
0.5 shots Dijon Cassis
1 dash Angustura bitters
Toss it all into a shaker. Give it a couple shakes. Pour into martini glass.
We both like it! Please let me know what you think, and if I inadvertently ripped this off from someone without knowing.
