Manhattan Dirty Mary Martini

New York style Bloody Mary

A lively combination that’s as bold as the city of Manhattan itself. With a glass decorated by a salt mixture reminiscent of an everything bagel, it has big flavor and thus does not require a big garnish. A simple slice of lemon or stuffed olive will most certainly do.
