While it is not really a Manhattan in the traditional sense, the Mile High Manhattan is a loose interpretation of the classic whiskey cocktail. Though there is no vermouth and resembles its namesake in whiskey alone, it is just as alluring.
The recipe is simple and elegant; in it, we add vanilla and orange to a premium bourbon, then finish it off with a hint of anise. The result is a dynamic drink that has a slight herbal spice to contrast the sweetness.
The trick to this trick is to be very delicate with the anise liqueur. Just a few drops will do because it is meant to accent the drink much in the way we typically use bitters. It is easy to add too much anise, so take it slow.
- There are many choices for anise liqueurs. One could use absinthe or any of its substitutes and Pernod and Herbsaint are both excellent options. There is also Sambuca and that would create a lighter anise that many drinkers may prefer.
- The vanilla liqueur has many options as well. Galliano Vanilla and Bols Vanilla are both good and there are a few brands that make vanilla schnapps. If you want to add a little more citrus to the drink, try Tuaca.
