History
J.P. Caceres, a Washington D.C. based mixologist, developed this twist on the classic Manahattan cocktail by combining the smooth yet subtly spicy flavors of Basil Hayden's bourbon with sweet vermouth, Cynar artichoke liqueur and two kinds of bitters. Complex, with a long finish, this cocktail is the perfect way to enjoy the end of a warm summer night.
