Today’s clever cocktail is a perfect sipper when sitting round the fire pit. It is our simple take on the Manhattan that employs the use of Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch and Sfumato Amaro to add a smoky dimension to the drink. It is a great fall rendition of the Manhattan that drinks great by any fire-side as well as next to your favorite BBQ!
