Perfect 10

This riff on a perfect Manhattan swaps out dry vermouth for sweet banana liqueur, and uses Scotch as the base spirit to add balance. Glenmorangie makes particularly light and floral scotch whiskies, making it a wonderful backbone for a scotch cocktail without becoming overpowering.


Ingredients

1.5 oz Glenmorangie Original 10 Year

.75 oz Sweet Vermouth (we used Trincheri Rosso)

.75 oz Creme de Banana (we used Giffard Banan du Bresil)

2 dashes Angostura Bitters




Preparation

To Build Cocktail: Combine all ingredients in stirring vessel with ice. Stir until properly diluted (approx. 30%). Strain into rocks glass over large format ice, or into coupe to serve up. Express orange oil over cocktail and use peel as garnish.
