The Gentleman’s Agreement

Stretching the boundaries of what can and cannot be considered a true Manhattan variant – in my mind anything that features whiskey and (sweet) vermouth – this week’s #midweekmanhattan is the Gentleman’s Agreement.

A sweet and overtly orange concoction, the Gentleman’s Agreement is an agreeable sort,  originally created (and named) for Jack Daniel’s ‘superpremium’ Gentleman Jack brand, but equally good with other manufacturers’ offerings:

  1. Stir 50ml bourbon, 25ml triple sec, 12.5ml sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters (orange if you have it) with cubed ice for sixty seconds.
  2. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.
  3. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.
