The “Marcs-man” Manhattan




Chilled Coupe Glass




Luxardo Cherry

About the Recipe

Another one of my favorite bars in the world, which to also be in London is the "Luggage Room" at the "Marriott Grovesnors Square" where I preferred to stay as I traveled to London every few weeks.. It is an awesome Speakeasy and the mixologists there are outstanding. Since I spent so much time there, the bartenders got to know me and what I liked to drink. One night I walked into the bar and just minutes later a drink appeared before me and I had not yet ordered so. I asked Kalem, the bartender "What's is this?", he replied that it's a variation of the usual Manhattan I would start the evenings with while there and he created it for me. I asked him what he called it and he replied,, the“Marcs-man”. He wrote the recipe down for me so that is the picture for the drink. The picture of me on this website having a drink is at the bar of the Luggage Room while drinking the "Marcs-man".
