All hands on deck

Not only does she make great cocktails but she also makes Testina. The hoof's better 1/2, Jen, lending a hand in the kitchen on one of our off days.

Jen needs to get on up this blog with her Manhattan recipe immediately.

There is no real secret, it's a classic Manhattan with 2 parts RYE (bourbon's great for sours, but a perfect manhattan's heart belongs to rye) to 1 part sweet vermouth, and a few drops home-made bitters (okay, maybe that's the secret but I'm taking it to my grave) and never ruin a great drink with chemical-laden maraschinos. At the Hoof, we use dried, sour cherries that we soak in booze and cook down to a syrupy consistency. And of course there's the love. STIR until ice cold but before the drink takes on too much water and serve in a cocktail glass.
