I went to a local crafts fair today and scored 3 vintage coupe glasses for $9 total.  So we enjoyed a Twentieth Century in them in the backyard this afternoon. 1 1/2 oz. gin 3/4 oz. Lil

I need better supervision. 

About $15?

My best friend got me this instant cocktail kit for my birthday.  Muddle the sugar cube with a little hot water until you get a syrup, add spirit, and stir over ice.  I tried the Manhattan one a few days ago, and boy did it make a strong drink.

I don't understand; don't you add the amount of booze you'd like? And who puts sugar in a Manhattan?

There are "recipes" on the back of the package--this one calls for 2 oz. of rye. Believe me, it wasn't very sweet.

2 oz. of Rye is definitely what I put into my Manhattans.

It's a STRONG drink.

But - balanced with an ounce of sweet vermouth and bitters! Which I don't see how a sugar cube can do.

Believe it or not, there's actually vermouth and bitters in the cubes.  Not sure how that's possible, but they're listed on the ingredients.
