The Spring Blossom Scotch Manhattan

0.0 from 0 votes

Let’s make a Spring Blossom Scotch Manhattan, a unique twist on a Manhattan cocktail using Monkey Shoulder, a smooth, blended Scotch whisky. For a springtime variant, we’ll infuse a floral note that complements the traditional profile of a Manhattan.

This cocktail takes the robust, malty flavors of Monkey Shoulder Scotch and pairs them with the sweet, herbal notes of elderflower liqueur and the aromatic touch of Peychaud’s bitters. The sweet vermouth adds depth and a slight hint of complexity. The overall drink is floral, a bit sweet, and very smooth, making it an elegant and easy-drinking choice for a spring evening. The garnish adds a touch of freshness and visual appeal, perfect for a relaxed night in or a festive gathering.

Hi! I’m Bob!

If it’s got bourbon in it, I’m drinking it. And if it’s really good, I’m gonna figure out how to make it, and share it with you. Because I’m good like that.
