After my shift on two Sundays ago, I finished off my week with a recipe from the third book I purchased, namely Philip Greene's The Manhattan. My starting point in the book was the author's Lion's Tail riff named after a War of 1812 ship. This riff like the Hair of the Lion and A Tale of Two Kitties picked rum as the base spirit which seems like a better choice than Bourbon given the lime juice.
