Madison Square

A unique blend of bourbon, sweet vermouth, and homemade fig syrup, this cocktail from the Silverleaf Tavern in New York City is similar to a Manhattan. The added dash of lavender bitters adds a floral note, while the fig syrup adds a lovely sweetness. See the recipe for Madison Square »Farideh Sadeghin

The cocktail menu at 70 Park Avenue's Silverleaf Tavern features an ingenious twist on the classic Manhattan: The Madison Square. Homemade fig syrup brings a deep, complex sweetness to the standard bourbon and sweet vermouth, while a dash of aromatic lavender bitters balances the drink with a fresh, floral note.
