LOWER EAST ~ quirky and quixotic. Not quite a Manhattan, this Tequila-based riff on the cocktail classic is a bit of a tribute to the up/down-market streets of the LES of NYC. Smoky notes of Ceylon Black and Lapsang Souchong infused into an earthy tequila blanco and offset by ethereal Bergamot and the complex sweetness of red vermouth.
