Introducing the Spyglass Cranhattan:
A seasonal, Spy-inspired take on the classic Manhattan—perfect for impressing your father-in-law before the family gathering or raising guests’ spirits at your next Friendsgiving. (Caveat: One too many of these could turn you into an obnoxious turkey!)
3 parts bourbon (or designer rye, if you’re so inclined)
1 part Cocchi di Torino (our your own favorite sweet vermouth)
1 handful fresh cranberries (tis the season!)
Some sweetness, to taste (we used Dram Pine Syrup)
Some bitterness, to taste (we used Dram Wild Mountain Sage & Fee Brothers Orange)
Put cranberries in a cocktail shaker; muddle/crush into small bits. Add bourbon and vermouth, a splash of syrup and a few dashes of bitters. Stir to mix all ingredients. Strain and pour into a lowball with ice. Garnish with whole cranberries & be grateful!
