thoughts on drinking, life and mixing the two.

The Cat-Hatten

Dubonnet, a spicy fortified wine with the bitter tang of quinine, is a great choice to replace vermouth if you want to shake up a traditional cocktail. This drink substitutes the traditional vermouth in the Manhatten with Dubonnet Rouge, and is called the Dubonnet Manhattan or, as I prefer, The Cat-Hatten, named for Madame Dubonnet’s famous pussy.

The Cat-Hatten

1 1/2 oz Makers Mark Bourbon

1 oz Rye whiskey

2 oz Dubonnet Rouge

2 dashes orange bitters

Lemon twist

Stir bourbon, rye, Dubonnet, and bitters together with ice, strain, garnish with lemon twist.
