Today we’re going to show you how to make the Monte Carlo, the recipe can be found here: https://bit.ly/3I0Ltht — This is a riff / variation on a traditional manhattan.
The first time we did the Monte Carlo was in 2013: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8i-ZBnLZrW0
The Monte Carlo, in my opinion, is a better drink than the Manhattan. Sure, plenty of love for the Manhattan, I get it, but the Monte Carlo is great for those that don’t want a fortified wine in their spirit but still allow the spirit to shine free.
In this case, a Rye Whiskey with just enough Benedictine to bring some sweeter honey notes to compliment the powerful properties of a Rye Whiskey. With just a hint of spicy notes probably from the Rye and Angostura. Well balanced, but yet just a bit sweeter and tighter than the traditional manhattan.
So good we’ve added this to our online recipe database for those to discover on their own: https://recipe.awesomedrinks.com/recipe/monte-carlo/
