The Eldred

Author Notes

This cocktail may just be my answer to a classic Manhattan--in more ways than one. I invented it to celebrate our move from the city to our cottage upstate in Sullivan County. It is a simple combination of only three ingredients but they add up to a wonderful balance of sweet, tart and smoky. —gluttonforlife
