Tammany Hall

About this Cocktail

For much of the 19th Century, the political operation known as Tammany Hall lorded over Manhattan, fixing elections, protecting its interests, making a criminal living off the island's vice, and giving political cover to its immigrant constituencies, notably the Irish. Celebrate your complete control over your city with a Tammany twist on the Manhattan cocktail, split between the period's finest Hollands gin and the immigrant whisky of the ascendant Irish. Crowned with a kingly vermouth and a sunspot of God's own Bénédictine liqueur, it's a swanky sip fit for Boss Tweed. Rafa García Febles, NYC, 2013. Photo by Eric Witz.
