@gabcarlos has the fastest timing so far, but... he missed a step! #fail

Do you think you can take on @cedieboy.regalo's #RegaloChallenge? πŸ˜‰

Go Frankie! 38.92 seconds.
Can you beat that?

#ManhattanRecommends the #RegaloCocktail

Make: Bacardi 8, lemon juice, house-made earl grey tea syrup, lager, walnut bitters and orange peel
Style: Shaken
Taste: Sweet, sour and refreshing

#ImpressMeTips:
With the tropical climate in the Philippines, spirits are enjoyed with ice cold beer or ice lemon tea. The concoction of the Regalo was created with bits of that drinking culture. Lemon juice and earl grey tea syrup represents the ice lemon tea, the walnut bitters represents the pulantan (nuts) typically served on the side, while beer completes the character and story of this refreshing drink.

Crystal Room
District: Central Park
Make: Lagavulin, crème de cacao, lime juice, sugar syrup, egg white and mint leaves
Style: Shaken
Taste: Mint and chocolate

#ImpressMeTips:
Its presentation is inspired by the fresh green garden beyond the surrounding glass windows of the crystal room. While chocolate and mint is known to go hand in hand, the hint of saltiness and briny taste of the Lagavulin creates a beautiful marriage of flavours in this cocktail.

And here's to another awesome year ahead! πŸŽ‰

Happy 2017!

A fun dunk and drink at Manhattan's Christmas Brunch. Don't let your gingerbread man run away! πŸ“·: @amy365chomps

"... I am positively gobsmacked, and stuffed, and not sure if I can go home on my own. Seriously worth every penny." - @larvitar
And that's how every #brunch experience should be, yes?

Greensward Plan
Make: Pisco, Moscato Nonino Grappa, lemon juice, simple syrup, green peas and a pinch of salt
District: Central Park
Style: Muddled and shaken
Taste: Fresh and vegetal

#ImpressMeTips:
Pisco sour is technically an unaged brandy and this cocktail is Manhattan's interpretation of how a healthy cocktail could taste like - since it is made of fresh green peas, it is perfect for the health conscious!

Shisandra Berries
Taste: Sweet, sour, bitter, warm, and salty
Drink: Mad Dog

#ImpressMeTips:
Native to Northern China, Russia, and parts of Korea, these berries are also known as Magnolia vines. Woody with oval pink leaves and bright red berries, these vines can be found in many fine gardens throughout the world. Its Chinese name wu-wei-zi, means five-taste fruit.
Shisandra has an unusual sour, sweet, bitter, warm, and salty taste, hence the name β€œfive taste”. Russian hunters have consumed it for centuries as a tea to help with fatigue.

Cabbage-Cured Salmon Bagel
Make: Cabbage-cured salmon, braised red cabbage, cream cheese and bagel chip
District: Central Park
Taste: Savoury

#ImpressMeTips:
Bagels are a popular American staple. Food carts with these favourite breakfast bites are aplenty at the entrances of Central Park; calling out to passer-bys on their morning commute. Here, we take a typical Smoked Salmon Bagel and gave it a Manhattan twist by curing smoked salmon with red-cabbage juice; giving it an intriguing purple hue. πŸ“·: @fundamentally_flawed

First Day of Christmas
Make: Spiced pear, bourbon, lime juice, jagertee syrup and egg white
Style: Shaken
Taste: Refreshing, tangy with a hint of spice

#ImpressMeTips:
Jagertee used in this drink is also used in one of New York's five most dangerous cocktails: The Crippler. Jagertee is similar to mulled wine, popular in central Europe. It is a favourite après-ski drink to keep warm or simply for a fun ride down the slopes. You can drink it on its own or mixed into a cocktail. Inspired by the song 'Twelve Days of Christmas'... so, what will your true love give on the first day of Christmas?

Rose Club
District: Central Park
Make: Four Roses single barrel bourbon, spiced pear liqueur, orange juice, grapefruit juice, French rose tincture, and champagne
Taste: Refreshing, bubbly, fruity and floral forward

A jazzy champagne cocktail, this is the only drink served in a black glass in Manhattan; a striking sophistication matching the club it was named after.

Rose Tincture
Make: Dried french roses, high-proof Boyd & Blair vodka
Taste: Strong, aromatic and dry
Drink: Rose Club, Central Park
#ImpressMeTips: Soaked for three days. Sweetness to the nose is extremely deceiving to the palate. A floral forward ingredient and the only floral tincture in Manhattan thus far. Although it smells lovely, this tincture is more suitable in a drink.
