The Cacao Manhattan

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset
This cocktail requires brewed cacao, about which I will post next week. I’m trying to give you a reason to keep coming back to this site and get my site traffic up so.

Haha jk. But seriously, brewed cacao recipe coming soon, and it is a WINNER. Imagine sophisticated Yoohoo + whiskeyyy. I’ve never actually had Yoohoo, keeping it real.

Oddly, this drink tasted good, but it smelled SO GOOD. I used a lemon peel because I had to, but go for an orange peel when you make this.


The Cacao Manhattan

Adapted from Jenni Avins

2 parts cold-brew cacao (recipe coming soon!)
2 parts Old Overholt rye whiskey
1 part sweet vermouth
1 dash angostura bitters

Combine the cacao, whiskey and vermouth in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a rocks glass. Add a dash of bitters and garnish with an orange twist.
