About this Cocktail

A @demonbitters original.

A bourbon and rye perfect Manhattan using bottle aged Applejack Boulevardier in place of the sweet vermouth. The subtle Campari bitterness balances the addition of some bourbon and works well with the chocolate notes of the bitters.

The applejack boulevardier was made at Christmas. Equal volumes Applejack, Gran Lusso sweet vermouth and Campari.

  • 20ml bourbon (Buffalo Trace)
  • 40ml rye (Rittenhouse 100)
  • 15ml dry vermouth
  • 15ml bottle aged Applejack boulevardier
  • Large dash of Aphrodite Bitters

Stir, strain. Express orange zest over and drop in.

    The name of this drink terrified me at first... but it sounds killer.

    What image did the name conjure up?
  • Dani DeLuna
    A homeless man lying on the ground at 1st ave and 10th St with his possessions packed into a smelly shopping cart.

    Hahaha. Ok so not very inviting. I think I was harking back to a more romantic byegone era!
