Fallen Leaves – Autumn Riff on a Manhattan

Fallen Leaves Cocktail

A symphony of autumn’s finest flavors, two types of vermouth, brandy, cognac, and rhubarb bitters, are stirred ( not shaken) to make a seasonal cocktail.

Inspired by the beginning of autumn, the Head Bartender of Bar Bastion, Enrique Diaz, created Fallen Leaves. The drink starts with an aromatic mix of vermouths, brandy and cognac. And, lastly, garnished with three dashes of rhubarb bitters. This last step enhances the aromas and further channels fall.

“Fallen Leaves is a symphony of autumn’s finest flavors, creating a well-balanced seasonal cocktail that promises a rich and layered sipping experience. The sweetness of the Vermouth Routin Blanc blended with notes of apple from the Calvados adds a refreshing element while contrasting the herbal and spicy undertones from the Cinzano Rosso. Meanwhile in the background, the Pierre Ferrand forms a smooth and elegant base, showcasing the depth of the high-quality brandy. This cocktail pays homage to the start of fall season where leaves are transforming, and the air turns crisp” – Enrique Diaz, Head Bartender at Bar Bastion
