The Manhattan allegedly has a documented history. When Samuel J. Tilden was elected Governor of New York in 1874, socialite Jenny Jerome threw a party at the Manhattan Club in New York to celebrate his victory. The bartender created a special drink for this occasion; one half ounce bourbon, one quarter ounce each sweet and dry Vermouth and a dash of bitters. She named the drink the Manhattan after the club. Both the drink and Jenny Jerome earned a place in history. She later became Lady Randolph Churchill, mother of Sir Winston Churchill.

We have placed a twist on this venerable cocktail by replacing the vermouth with a touch of the sweet Spanish brandy liqueur, Quarenta y Tres.
