Know your audience. It’s a simple rule, but boy oh boy is it ever useful. Especially when entertaining friends and family. The illustrious Limpd understands this rule and always makes sure that everyone has what they like to drink on hand.
On today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table, we’re chatting at length about a ready-to-drink Manhattan Cocktail that Limpd purchased for a recent wine-centric family dinner so that his brother-in-law would have something he liked to drink. If that’s not hospitality, I don’t know what is!
This Manhattan Cocktail comes to us from the Sazerac Company and is made at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. It goes by the name Handy & Schiller.
Here’s a bit more information about this beverage from the Sazerac Company website:
Mr. Handy and Mr. Schiller worked together at the renowned Sazerac Coffee House in the French Quarter of New Orleans. In the early days of cocktail-making these two set the standard for the future of the American cocktail. Our barrel aged, classic cocktails are produced, aged and bottled at the world-famous Buffalo Trace Distillery, carrying on the finest mixing traditions with a modern but authentic twist.
The Handy & Schiller Barreled Manhattan is carefully crafted using our gold medal award-winning Sazerac Rye Whiskey, vermouth and our famous Peychaud’s Bitters aged together in meticulously selected barrels. This signature cocktail is conveniently ready to drink and of the highest quality, every time.
We’ve been lucky enough to visit New Orleans in the past, and as far as eating and drinking destinations go, it’s a tough city to beat as we don’t think the words bland or flavorless are in their culinary vocabulary.
