La Condesa's Calimocho Manhattan

[Photographs: Melody Fury]

Simmering Mexican Coca Cola, brandy, and red wine down into a syrup provides body to this spin on a Manhattan from La Condesa in Austin, Texas. Rye and Punt e Mes coax out the syrup's complexity.

Note: Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas' Own Decanter Bitters are available at liquor stores and online, but in a pinch, you could make this drink with Angostura.
