The Manhattan Project – a guest post by Bear A few of us have recently been inspired by the CMH Gourmand to turn a recreational evening or two into a quest for quality cocktails.  The Gourmand’s evening of Mojito Madness, while fun, got very confusing in the face of countless variations, so we decided to choose a well-known standard, the Manhattan:  in its most classic form, two parts whiskey, one part vermouth, a dash of bitters, stirred and served up rather than on the rocks. To keep our wits about us, we spread six Manhattans over two nights.  We developed […]

DeepWood hosted ‘The Pig Who Went to Market’ dinner on Monday night.
