A while back, I went to the Mermaid Inn on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. There I had a drink called The Gotham, a Manhattan derivative. While the drink list gave me the ingredients, I wasn’t convincing enough to get the recipe from the bartender. After playing with it a bit, though, I think I’ve recreated it. Or, at least, created something really good using the same ingredients. I’ll still refer to it as The Gotham. It’s a cool and appropriate name.
- 3 oz Rye (I used Bulleit)
- 3/4 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
- 1/4 oz Campari
- At least one Luxardo cherry as a garnish
