Metropole Cocktail

The Metropole Cocktail was the house cocktail at the Metropole Hotel, opened in New York just before the beginning of the 20th century. Some say it is a stronger and spicier version of the Manhattan. We say, it is delicious.


1 1/2 oz brandy or cognac

3/4 oz dry vermouth

dash Bitter Truth Orange Bitters

2 dashes Bitter Truth Creole Bitters

1/8 oz simple syrup


stir with ice

strain into a cocktail glass

Excellent video, Robert! Found this drink in Wondrich’s book, and I dig it. Showed it to my friend and she loved it too. Hoping I can find bitter truth in Canada, but my Peychauds is good enough for now.
