Tequila Manhattan Recipe

"A Manhattan with a tequila twist is a great way to start exploring tequila as a new spirit, or enjoy one you already love. Like any great cocktail, the key to making it perfect is temperature, dilution and quality ingredients. I would use a sweet vermouth that’s on the lighter side, like Dolin Rouge, so those delicate tequila flavours aren’t overpowered. A classic sweet Manhattan would normally be garnished with a cherry but this tequila twist would certainly benefit from an orange twist."

- Robyn Evans, Drinks Distilled Spirits Guide


What you need 


  1. Add 50ml tequila, 20ml vermouth and 2 dashes of orange bitters to the mixing glass.

  2. Fill the mixing glass with ice and stir for 10-20 seconds.

  3. Strain into a Coupe, Rocks or Martini glass.

  4. Pinch orange zest over the top to release the oils, then drop it into the glass.
