Drink: Smokehouse Manhattan
From: Smokehouse Bar-B-Q
Great KC BBQ requires a cocktail that can match. Smokehouse has a lovely take on the classic Manhattan. With Old Overholt Rye Whiskey, bitters, and sweet vermouth, it’s well balanced and compliments the sweet nature of Smokehouse’s sauce.
The drink: sweet, tart, great whiskey flavor.
What makes this a unique Manhattan is the black cherry infusion of Old Overholt. It adds a subtle fruitiness and depth of flavor to the cocktail. The cocktail is a bit heavy on the vermouth, but it adds that extra sweetness that goes well with their style of BBQ.
