Chocolate Ginger Manhattan

Heather Wibbels
Punch up a chocolatey Manhattan with the heat and spice of ginger. It's an unlikely but compelling match and one that's easy to sip at the end of a long day working from home.

  • 1 dash Bitter Truth chocolate bitters
  • 2 dash Hella ginger bitters
  • 3 drops Old Forester Smoked Cinnamon bitters (optional)
  • 1 bar spoon simple syrup
  • Garnish: candied ginger and chocolate


  • Combine bourbon, ginger, chocolate liqueur and bitters in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir until well-chilled – about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass and garnish with candied ginger and chocolate.
