Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Blue Nectar Manahttan

by Jill Beathard

MAKE IT

Blue Nectar Special Reserve

Angastura bitters

Orange peel

Most people drink tequila one of two ways: as a shot or in a margarita. But Blue Nectar, which started distilling handcrafted tequila in 2010, is trying to shake things up. Enter the Blue Nectar Manhattan, which I had the pleasure of tasting during last week’s Après Ski Cocktail Classic. This drink has all the simple goodness of the classic cocktail but none of the burn.
