Månsattan

IT’S LIFE’S CREATION

Manshattan

A good Manhattan is Ana’s go to cocktail. Love it love it love it. We both feel pretty much the same way about Måns. Heroes is up there with some of the greatest Eurovision entries ever, so it was only fitting that we bring you this ‘perfect’ Manhattan in his honour.

Make sure you’ve fed well before having one of these, it is very strong.
