Locals Only Manhattan

This week we enter the Demilitarized Zone, AKA the DMZ, AKA Manhattan.  The story takes us thru a war torn New York in the center of a second American Civil War. Vertigo presents DMZ, a tale from expertly written by Brian Wood with beautiful Art by Riccardo Burchielli.

  • 1.5 oz Rye Whiskey
  • 1.75 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • .5 oz Grand Marnier
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters

Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

This is a bit on the sweeter side as Manhattans go.  Q changed the name from the Employees Only Manhattan, to the Locals Only Manhattan.  We're assuming that the Employees Only is a reference to the famous Employees Only Speak Easy in New York.  Not sure if it is still on Netflix, but there was a documentary on there called Hey Bartender, about the bartenders at Employees only.  Worth checking out if you are so inclined.
