|Jack's Artemesia Blood Orange Manhattan, aka "New Jack City"|
Some months back, my friend Jack Coates e-mailed me a cocktail recipe he'd dreamed up using my organic Artemesia Kumquat liqueur; it was a new version of a classic - the Manhattan.
Well, I kept meaning to try it, but I didn't have sweet vermouth on hand. Well, I have some now! Last night I decided to shake one up.... oh, Jack! That was sooo much tastier than the Manhattans Joel and I had in a hip all-night bar in Manhattan we went to with our New Yorker friends Kelly and Mo. Now I'm a believer - in Manhattans!
Then, last night he invented a new variation on it - this one with Artemesia Blood Orange Liqueur. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds just as fab. Jack Coates - you, my friend, are a talented mixmaster.
I guess I'd better get that recipe right on out to you.
