The light, nutty profile of the Glen Moray Elgin instantly had Tiffanie Barriere craving a Manhattan, but with a twist. She swapped out the traditional sweet vermouth by splitting oloroso sherry and Bénédictine, enhancing the drink with earthy, honey elements to balance out the oak from the Scotch. A splash of elderflower liqueur adds a light, floral sweetness, keeping this spirited cocktail approachable.
