When a Maker’s Mark ambassador came into Noble Experiment looking for something low abv and direct, this is what he got.  Named for its connection to a Filthy Rich, the Down-and-Out cocktail showcases Tony Roehr’s love for Manhattans and sherry. It’s simple enough to make at home, and you’ll feel fancy when you do.

Makers 46 is the key to this cocktail. The bold notes of wood and vanilla play beautifully with the nutty touch of Amontillado Sherry, while Cynar and Benedictine create a decadent, herbaceous backbone for a truly crushable Manhattan variation. “Easily accessible ingredients followed by an easy build, leads to a rich cocktail that’s full of complexity,” says Roehr. “It’s like a mouth party. You know, the kind of party that’s in your mouth.”
