Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Thursdays ago, I had spotted a recipe on the Instagram account for Chip Welsh (@chips_classic_cocktails), a bartender at The Fig & The Barrel Pub in York City, Pennsylvania, called the Franklin & Broadway. While there are many intersections of Broadway and Franklin including one here in Somerville, Massachusetts, there was a famous one that was New York's most fashionable shopping district in the mid-19th century. This Black Manhattan of sorts began with peak smoke and caramel on the nose. Next, caramel and a hint of cherry on the sip transitioned into rye, smoky Scotch, herbal, and nutty cherry flavors with a peat smoke finish
