Tequila Manhattan – The Best Variation of the Manhattan

A modern variation of the classic Manhattan this one substitutes bourbon for anejo tequila. This is a really tasty cocktail and if you’re a tequila fan this is defiantly worth a try. Be sure to use anejo(old) tequila. Reposado is ok but not great and silver or gold tequila is not good at all in this cocktail. It can only be anejo.
