It's a horrible name for anything really but especially a shirt.


On a visit to Manhattan last year, I figured I ought to to try the drink. I am now hooked. I've been getting them at bars with Maker's, and have gotten pretty good at making them at home. But In These Economic Times, is there something else that makes a good Manhattan (ie., is cheaper but still mixes well with sweet vermouth and bitters)?

Also, while looking up Laphroaig so I can order one at a bar without making an rear end out of myself over the pronunciation*, I found this tidbit:

wikipedia posted:

In 1994 the Friends of Laphroaig Club was established, members of which are granted a lifetime lease of 1 square foot (0.093 m2) of Laphroaig land on the island of Islay. The annual rent is a dram of Laphroaig which can be obtained upon visiting the distillery.


*It's luh-FROIG, if you're wondering.

Sign me up! Sorry, I just found that description hilarious.

I live in VA, where our liquor stores are state-operated, and therefore have somewhat limited options. I've taken a shine to Evan Williams for my Manhattan-making needs, usually EW black label. Is it worth it to special order EW 1783? What's the difference?
