Irish Manhattan

Guinness is about as Irish as it comes, but if you find a pint of the black stuff too much to take, why not try this delicious and sophisticated Irish Manhattan Cocktail?

Ingredients
1 shot Jameson Irish Whisky
1/2 shot Noilly Prat sweet vermouth
Splash of Angostura bitters
Guinness to top up

Method
Pour the whisky, vermouth and bitters into a cocktail mixer and fill 2/3 of the way with ice.  Shake or stir, depending on your preference, and then strain into a martini glass.

Pour the Guinness into a cold glass and allow to settle. Spoon the creamy top of the Guinness onto the martini glass and enjoy!

    I would not be inclined to spoil the Whisky - neat for me please.
    Sweet vermouth - with soda water or orange juice.
    Angostura bitters on it's own is great if you have an unsettled stomach - just a sip or two through a straw as it will stain your teeth - & you are right again.
    I love Guinness therefore I will just have it in a glass - cold please.
