manhattan harbor co.

1 1/2 oz Angel's Envy Bourbon
1 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz Lustau East India Solera Sherry
2 dash Orange Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
For my second drink at Backbar, I requested a Manhattan variation with Angel's Envy, and bartender Carlo Caroscio opted for a drink called the Manhattan Harbor Co. that he created for a competition a few years back. The structure reminded me of the Chancellor, and Carlo replied that he had just had that drink at 11 Madison Park a few weeks ago. In the glass, the Manhattan Harbor Co. greeted the senses with a raisin aroma from the sherry. Next, grape and hint a pear on the sip gave way to Bourbon, nutty, raisin, and orchard fruit flavors on the swallow.
