Roasted Plum Manhattan Cocktail

 In Videos, Vya

The Manhattan recipe is one of the building blocks of modern mixology. Without changing the recipe proportions you can simply create a new and  interesting drink experience by infusing the spirit with fruit or herbs. Roasting plums to infuse them in your whiskey pulls out tangy flavors of the fruit, adding a sweet and savory quality to your classic Manhattan cocktail.
