Whiskey • Dry
Cabernet Manhattan

This round and rich take on a Black Manhattan splits the usual whiskey with Cabernet Sauvignon for a drink that’s lighter in ABV but certainly not in flavor. We used Charles Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon from Trader Joe’s, which packs a lot of vanilla-tinged oak. It melds beautifully with the sweet-spiced bourbon and lightly vegetal Cynar. A couple of dashes of pimento bitters bring it all together for a cocktail that screams, “Serve me with cheese!”
