The Spiced Manhattan Recipe

Yields 1 drink


  • 1 tablespoon of fine white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of dried chili flakes
  • 4 kumquats halved
  • 2 ounces of rye whiskey
  • 0.5 ounces of red vermouth
  • 0.5 ounces of chili liqueur
  • Dash of bitters


Combine the sugar and chili flakes together on a small plate. Wet the rim of a couple glass and invert into the chili sugar to lightly coat the edge.

Place the kumquats in a cocktail mixing glass and muddle. Add ice and then add the whiskey, vermouth and chili liqueur. Stir until combined and chilled. Strain into the prepared coupe glass and serve.
