This month’s Mixology Monday topic was near and dear to our hearts – the topic was “The Manhattan”. (I think just about everyone knows that’s Chris’ favorite cocktail, and definitely within my top 5!)

With this cocktail I’ve decided to take our Manhattan a little … south.  Well, South and West, to be specific. We’re using Rum instead of whiskey and chocolate bitters in the place of Angostura. I’m looking for a little more of a pre-Colombian spicy sweet flavor – and this one brought it!

Thanks Frederic for an awesome topic and hosting once again this month!
