Reverse Manhattan

Though vermouth is mainly used today as a modifier, Justin Lavenue, the co-owner and operator of The Roosevelt Room in Austin, points out it was poured more liberally in the mid to late 1800s. “In a lot of ways, the Reverse Manhattan is an homage to how people used to drink vermouth and homage to the genesis of cocktails as a whole,” he says. “If balanced correctly, [it] can be a wildly delicious drink.”
