Why You Need A Celery Manhattan
I was taught how to make a Manhattan by an older bartender who told me to pour a good dose of whisky in the glass and then add sweet vermouth until it turns a certain colour. No need to measure! For a long time, I thought he was just a lazy man with no love for his craft. But when I went to Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, the bartender— who was celebrating his 40th year of duty—made me a white lady with the same “precision.” I realized it was a style of bartending back in the day. — Jean-Felix Desfosses
