A new classic

The State Street Manhattan, Morton’s The Steakhouse

Morton’s The Steakhouse brought back one of its signature drinks, The State Street Manhattan ($16), in homage to its original location in Chicago circa 1978. This is a robust, fragrant cocktail where the bourbon and vermouth have been “slow-drip” infused (for more than an hour) with sweet Italian Amarena cherries and fresh orange peels. The result is an impactful wallop of flavor. It’s as if all of your taste buds ignite at once leaving impressions of sweet, sour, bitter and tangy. And there’s only one way to top off such a vibrant and complex taste profile: An order of Morton’s famous savory prime strip. Cheers! 621 Capitol Mall, mortons.com.
