Christmas in Manhattan #1

The Christmas Pudding is one of the highlights of the season. Made weeks (months...years...) in advance, it slumbers through the darkening nights of early winter, ready to emerge, afalme as the centrepiece of the Christmas feast. It even plays a significant and redemptive role in this year's John Lewis advert...

But what if you could combine some of the flavours of the venerable old pud with a classic cocktail like the Manhattan?

Christmas in Manhattan #1

50ml Christmas pudding bourbon
25ml sweet vermouth
12.5ml Christmas Mulled Cup liqueur
2 dashes bitters

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with cubed ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled coupe.
