Since we are just getting back home from the Romance Writers of America (RWA) National Conference in New York, the natural choice for August was a Manhattan. I googled recipes and found several excellent contenders. Then I stumbled on The Bubbly Manhattan, and the search was over.
The Bubbly Manhattan replaces dry vermouth with an IPA. That’s right, folks — it’s a beer cocktail. Even better, it’s a bourbon and beer cocktail. Clearly making it the most perfect drink ever for First Draught. Seriously, I’m not sure how I’m going to top this next month, but I’ll certainly enjoy trying.
Get the recipe for a Bubbly Manhattan here* and join us next Tuesday, August 4th at 8:30 EDT to talk about Hooking Readers with Effective First Chapters.
