'Drink of the Week' NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS COCKTAIL

ABOUT THE NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS COCKTAIL
Originally created by Tyler Mitchell, the general manager and beverage guru at Washington, D.C.’s Chloe, for a guest requesting a zero-proof pairing for one of the restaurant’s signature dishes, cobia crudo, this drink proved to be so popular they’ve reworked it with Mahón gin as a secret off-menu option for those in the know. “I really appreciate the texture of aloe, so I prefer to leave the cocktail unstrained,” he says. When you’re working with aloe, be sure to taste it first before adding sweetener to the drink, as every brand has different sweetness levels, he cautions.

'Drink of the Week' Reverse Manhattan

ABOUT THE REVERSE MANHATTAN COCKTAIL
Though vermouth is mainly used today as a modifier, Justin Lavenue, the co-owner and operator of The Roosevelt Room in Austin, points out it was poured more liberally in the mid to late 1800s. “In a lot of ways, the Reverse Manhattan is an homage to how people used to drink vermouth and homage to the genesis of cocktails as a whole,” he says. “If balanced correctly, [it] can be a wildly delicious drink.”
This recipe originally appeared as part of “5 Modern Riffs on the Reverse Manhattan.”
