Melting Pot Mashup

Melting Pot Mashup

1 drink

A cocktail that elicits the response “Hmmm, what’s in this?” is often the best kind. Rather than being overloaded with any one element, it keeps you sipping to pinpoint each flavor. That’s the goal for the Melting Pot Mashup. Too much Chartreuse in this one and you’ll know it—just like NYC, several well-balanced ingredients make for a great thing. This cocktail takes components found in tropical cocktails and combines them with classic spirits for a fun twist on a Manhattan.

Ice (for shaker)

1 ½ ounces local dark rum

⅓ ounces brown sugar simple syrup

¼ ounces Green Chartreuse

¾ ounce cognac

¾ ounce Ransom dry vermouth

3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

2 two-inch cinnamon sticks

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.


Mix all ingredients except 1 of the cinnamon sticks. Strain into a rocks glass with a large ice sphere and garnish with the remaining cinnamon stick.
