RUM MANHATTAN COCKTAIL RECIPE
Created sometime around 1880, (around the same time that Brugal was founded in 1888) the Manhattan became the most famous cocktail in the world shortly after it was invented in New York City’s Manhattan Club.
The composition of a Manhattan is 2 parts spirit, 1 part vermouth and bitters. Each ingredient complements each other for a full-bodied flavour experience.
Brugal 1888 is crafted for depth of flavour, creating the ideal spirit to bring out the best of spirit-forward cocktails. A Manhattan serve puts the exceptional double-aged rum flavour at the forefront of the cocktail and is an experience that should not be missed.
Our Brand Ambassador for Brugal 1888, Pavol Kazimir, has used his decade of rum expertise to reimagine the Manhattan with our special rum – along with some other key ingredients from your home bar to craft the perfect serve. Let’s explore.
How to make a Dominican Double Rum Manhattan
Inspired by combining two of the Dominican Republic’s biggest exports, the organic banana and Brugal for a rich flavour profile.
A Dominican twist on a Manhattan that amplifies the rich flavour profile of Brugal 1888. This serve enhances and unlocks the sweet aroma of banana within Brugal 1888; a tasting note created by our carefully crafted double cask aging process, first in superior quality American Oak Bourbon casks and then European Oak Oloroso sherry casks.
