The Suburban – Think Outside the Glass

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

cocktail2I do love me a good Manhattan. So using a favorite as inspiration, I?ve created my own rendition of the classic cocktail. Call it the Suburban, well, cause I don?t live anywhere near Manhattan. Not even Manhattan Beach. I live in the burbs, but I promise, you don?t have to live there to enjoy it.

Made with a seasonal, homemade cranberry-clementine simple syrup (click here for the recipe) and rye whiskey, this simple but impressive cocktail will surely become one of your favorites. I know purists will turn up their noses (and close this window), but I have a little thing for?North American Whiskey. Though my go-to is usually?George Dickel or Blantons (which is a blend of corn, rye and malted barley), the Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye Canadian Whiskey is quite good in a cocktail. All on its own, you?ll find it sweet with caramel and molassas, distinctive with apples and pie spice and smooth, without being alcohol hot.
