White Christmas in Manhattan--a Holiday Bourbon cocktail

A Baby Bourbon Cocktail–White Christmas in Manhattan

A Bourbon Cocktail Gets a Holiday Makeover

I’m so excited to share this Holiday recipe from one of my favorite spirits experts, Annette Tomei. It is something that she and her NYC-based spirits biz buddies have been stirring up for the Holidays. It’s a Bourbon cocktail made with one of her favorite spirits, Hudson Baby Bourbon.

The cocktail is her twist on the Big Apple classic, a Manhattan. But she uses the extraordinary flavor of Bittermen’s Spiced Cranberry bitters to give it a refreshing–and aphrodisiac twist! (You can substitute with your favorite bourbon but the bitters–a must!) And you know how we love cranberries.

Want to take it up a notch? Try adding our Sugared Cranberries for an unforgettable garnish.
