Created by Washington D.C. based mixologist, J.P. Caceres, this wonderful Game Set Match Cocktail is a nice twist on the classic Manhattan. It combines bourbon whiskey with sweet vermouth, two kinds of bitters, and a unique artichoke-based liqueur. Don't worry, Cynar does not taste like artichokes because the other plants and herbs dominate the liqueur's flavor. Complex, with a long finish, this cocktail is the perfect way to enjoy the end of a warm summer night.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine the ingredients in a mixing glass filled with ice.

  3. Stir for 25-30 seconds.

  4. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

  5. Garnish with a lemon wedge and cherry. Serve and enjoy.


  • Two styles of bitters are used in this cocktail. It is not a common occurrence though it does happen from time to time because each flavor brings in a new aspect that adds to the balance of the drink. 

How Strong Is the Game Set Match?

This is a pretty potent cocktail because it is made up completely of alcoholic ingredients, just be sure to stir it properly to get a nice dilution. On average, the finished drink will weigh in at a hefty 29 percent ABV (58 proof).
