“Although the ingredients are quite similar to a ‘perfect’ Manhattan, the Good Friday is more closely related to a drink called the Double Barrel. The healthier dose of vermouth yields a much lighter-bodied drink that is lower in alcohol content, and the cognac adds complex fruity notes.” — Rene Hidalgo, bar manager, Lantern’s Keep at the Iroquois Hotel, New York
1 ounce cognac
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1 ounce dry vermouth
3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Add all ingredients except the twist to a rocks glass. Add ice and stir. Garnish with the lemon twist.
