Manhattan Variations: Bushwick

Here’s a Brooklyn with sweet vermouth instead of dry. I had wondered if it might be slightly too heavy for my taste but ended up enjoying it. The inspiration of bartender Phil Ward, it was brought to my attention by Keith P, who writes theSpeakista and has a fine Manhattan series of his own.

Bushwick
  • 2 oz rye (Rittenhouse 100)
  • 3/4 oz sweet vermouth (Carpano Antica)
  • 1/4 oz Torani Amer
  • 1/4 oz Maraschino (Luxardo)
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Richer than the original Brooklyn, there’s a Red Hookish darkness from the sweet vermouth that I may even prefer in this sort of arrangement to dry vermouth.
