The Subdued

The Subdued

1 drink

The Subdued takes you on a journey to Spain in its very forward sherry fashion, but in a silky, soft way. Utilizing a blend of sweet and dry sherry along with a sweet vermouth complements the spicy qualities of the rye. This might be your new favorite Manhattan.

Ice (for shaker)

¾ ounces local rye whiskey

½ ounce Amontillado (sweet) sherry

½ ounce Fino (dry) sherry

¾ ounce Spanish Rojo vermouth (vermut)

2 dashes Angostura bitters

5 toasted star anise

Toast star anise in a pan over medium high heat until you begin to notice the aroma (about 5 minutes). Let cool.


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Mix all ingredients except 1 star anise. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with the remaining star anise.
