Ingredients (4)

  • 4 parts añejo tequila
  • 1 part Navan vanilla liqueur
  • Dash sweet vermouth
  • Dash bitters

Adding tequila to a classic Manhattan sounds blasphemous, but Nick Tarsi, the bar director at Boulder’s Zolo Grill, does just that.

What to buy: Navan vanilla liqueur is a vanilla-infused Cognac made by Grand Marnier. It can be found at high-end liquor stores or here.


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir with a bar spoon or swizzle stick and strain into a chilled glass.
