Keep the Change - a Michter's Manhattan

A smooth and complex Manhattan which lets the Michter's Toasted Bourbon shine in the front as hints of the sweet vermouth and fig and orange bitters round out the palate.

Servings 1


  • 2 oz Michter's Toasted
  • 1 oz good quality vermouth I used Cocchi di Torino
  • 1 dropper Crude Fig and Orange bitters
  • Garnish: orange rose


  • Combine cocktail ingredients in a mixing glass and add ice. Stir until well-chilled and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with an orange rose and sip as slowly as you can.


You'll want another. I can promise you. The orange rose garnish is MUCH harder after that first cocktail.
