Passiflora incarnata

My cocktail for sanity today, the bitters in water and the passion flower straight no chaser.

    Bitters

    The final, and some argue most important, part of the Manhattan is the bitters. This time four selections were brought around for sampling: Angostura, which had a very ginger aroma; Fee Brothers brought orange and cinnamon characteristics; Regan’s Orange which surprisingly tasted like a dried orange; Peychard’s Bitters and all the anise flavor you can imagine. This added layer of complexity and choice brings all the different aspects of the Manhattan into a bit more clarity.

    Since 1793!! For any bar to be complete there must be a bottle of Peychaud’s Bitters. Necessary in all of the most sophisticated cocktails, Peychaud’s enhances the taste of whatever you’re sipping. Try them in Manhattans, Old Fashioneds, Whisky Sours or in our signature Sazerac Cocktail. The Original Sazerac Cocktail— Take two heavy-bottomed 3 1/2-oz. Bar glasses; fill one with cracked ice and allow it to chill while placing a lump of sugar with just enough water to moisten it. Crush the saturated lump of sugar with a bar spoon. Add a few drops of Peychaud’s Bitters, a jigger of rye whisky and several lumps of ice and stir briskly. Empty the first glass of ice, dash in several drops of Herbsaint, twirl the glass rapidly and shake out the absinthe. Enough of it will cling to the glass to impart the desired flavor. Strain into this glass the rye whisky mixture prepared in the other glass. Twist a lemon peel over the glass, but do not put it in the drink.
