The Double Knot: A twist on the Manhattan at Double Knot

The Double Knot: A twist on the Manhattan at Double Knot

In addition to all of that coffee upstairs, sake down and of course wide selections of beer and wine, Double Knot beverage manager Zachary Davis has created a cocktail list that must be explored.

The list is anchored by the Double Knot, a riff on the Manhattan mad by doubling up all of the ingredients. That means two whiskeys, two vermouths, and two kinds of bitters.

The Double Knot includes:

  • Maker’s Mark Bourbon
  • George Dickel Rye
  • Carpano Bianco
  • Punta e mes
  • Angostura and orange bitters

Cinnamon and clove are then placed on a Makers Mark bourbon barrel stave and smoked with a torch. A snifter is then placed over the embers and delivered with the cocktail in a small carafe. The glass is flipped, a puff of scented smoke escapes the seasoned glass and the cocktail poured. The result is a slightly smoky and difficult to put down drink. Drink up.
