In the last issue of Cuina magazine Ideal has a little reportage about the Manhattan, one of the favorite cocktails of Josep Mª Gotarda. This cocktail is one of the most iconic in the mixology world and its relation with the city of New York is indisputable, at Ideal you can enjoy its classical version made out of whisky or rye but Gotarda has his own preference and makes it with bourbon or, if the client desires, he makes it with vermouth. However, this cocktail doesn’t need any extra change to be perfect in its own way with the traditional recipe and that’s what makes it so famous amongst other cocktails. Here we leave you the recipe for a good Manhattan and the pictures of the reportage.
- 6 cl of bourbon or rye
- 2 cl of black vermouth (at Ideal we use Martini)
- 2 touches of Angostura
- 1 marrasquino cherry
Cool down a martini glass, put in a shaker some ice and shake it, take out the water excess and add the bourbon, the vermouth and the angostura, mix it up to cool everything down. Put a cherry in the glass and pour down the liquid in it filtering the ice with a strainer and it’s ready to serve.
