Romance à Manhattan

"I believe this is a delicious recipe for poeple who want to start to appreciate spirit forward cocktails. I'm not saying it isn't good for you if you already dig that type of drinks because I really liked it and let's say it's pretty much my favourite style of concoction. What I'm saying is its subtle fruity notes and floral sweetness will simply coax pretty much anyone who think strong cocktails are tough to drink."
