|New York's Burning|
It was bound to happen one of these days. While cooking my wife's favorite fish recipe, Two Manhattan Salmon (recipe at:http://www.enter.net/~bvdrangs/recipes.html), I was following the instructions and making a Manhattan for myself and by some sleight of hand got the smoke flavoring instead of the bitters. I noticed it only after my hand was progressing toward the glass and too late to stop without getting some in the glass. (Yes the bourbon was already there). Oh no, now what do I do? Can't waste the bourbon. Figuring that I had only hit it with one shake, I decided to add the bitters and then in a flash of brilliance, hit it with a shake or two of Pica Jalapeno Hot Sauce. Mix well and taste, Wow, it is actually good. You can just taste the smoke and the heat starts coming through. Not only a Manhattan, but smoke and fire too. Look out New York is Burning! A new drink is born!
