Man O'War - Is there a hidden bar on a battleship ?

I really love to use old classic recipes and give them a modern boost with new and exciting spirits.

The Man O’War is a cocktail named after one of the very best racehorses in the American racing history. In the years 1919-1920 this horse competed in 21 races and won 20 times. Man O’War also refers to a warship, which sparked my curiosity ๐Ÿ˜‰

The original recipe is prepared with bourbon, but I chose a more herbal touch with Knob Creek Rye Whiskey. The home-made orange liqueur is actually arancello. We used an old Italian (secret) family-recipe for limoncello, but swapped the lemons for oranges. Nobody got killed. That last remark is for Godfather-fans only ๐Ÿ˜‰

Is there a hidden bar on a battleship ?

5 cl Knob Creek Rye Whiskey
3 cl Home-made Orange Liqueur (You can also use Cointreau or Triple Sec, but it will change the color of the drink)
1 cl Sweet Vermouth
1 cl Fresh lemon juice

There’s juice in it, so it needs to be shaken. Add everything to your shaker with lots of ice. Shake for 20 seconds and double strain in a large cognac glass. Garnish with a sweet cocktail cherry.
