From: The Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange
The Rieger is located in The Crossroads District on the corner of Main and 20th. You can’t miss the J. Rieger & Co Whiskey sign on the side of the brick building (side note: J. Rieger Whiskey is coming back). It’s also the restaurant that houses Manifesto in its basement. The atmosphere is classy, laid back and authentic. You can watch chef/owner Howard Hanna and his crew in the open kitchen as you sip on some seriously great cocktails. The house-made tonics, bitters, and freshly squeezed juices put these drinks over the top.
If you like Old Fashioned and Manhattan – type drinks, you’ve got to try this one. Named after the Mayor that made Kansas City the Paris of The Plains, it’s made with Bourbon, Sweet Vermouth, Benedictine, and bitters it’s unique and flavorful.
The drink: spicy, strong, sweet, and aromatic.
The bartenders will whip you one up in no time, serve it cold with a twist, and your night will be made. It’s one of the most popular drinks at the bar for a reason.
