1980's Wild Turkey Black Manhattan // @thewhiskeymcgee

A different take on the Manhattan, dare we say a better one. 

From The Maker:

"This 1980’s Wild Turkey Black Manhattan from the Campari Vintage Spirits dinner at @theballardcut is one of the best cocktails I have had in a hot minute. Vintage @wildturkey Bourbon, Carpano Antica and Amaro Felsina. Absolute banger."

Yuzu is having a moment, this cocktail shows its cocktail prowess brilliantly.

Classic, easy and refreshing for anytime on a boat or in your living room.

"D A R K 'N  S T O R M Y ®

2 oz Goslings Black Seal Rum
6 oz Goslings Stormy Ginger Beer
In a tall glass filled with ice, add the ginger beer and then float the rum on top. Optionally garnish with lime.
It’s sunny and gorgeous out and I’m here celebrating international #DarkNStormyDay with @GoslingsRum ! Commemorating Bermuda’s refreshing national cocktail and the authentic original recipe made with Goslings Black Seal Rum and ginger beer, that was trademarked 40 years ago today. 😄🍹
Mix one up and join me! Cheers!"

Mezcal Negroni // @spiritandspoon 

Mix up your Negroni with a little of Mexican flare.

From The Maker:

"So much love for Negroni Week, BUT with that said … I’ll take a Mezcal Negroni over a traditional Gin one almost any day of the week.

IMHO the vermouth & bitter just play better with the notes of Mezcal.

So what’s your Negroni Team : Gin or Mezcal? Or wildcard with Rum?

Let’s keep this conversation
playful without ruffling any feathers b/c at the end of the day it’s just your personal preference 😎. Definitely 💯 respect & appreciate whatever your answer may be!"
