Given the task of making a drink with either Manischewitz or “dude vodka”—by bartender Luke LeFiles of Hot Chocolate, Bar DeVille’s Bradley Bolt took the high road, creating what he called a “fruity manhattan” with Manischewitz Cherry. The cocktail’s name comes from the Hebrew proverb “Better blind of eye than blind of heart.”

Blind of Eye

1 oz Buffalo Trace bourbon

.75 oz Manischewitz Cherry

.75 oz Carpano Antica vermouth

.5 oz Lemon Hart 151 rum

Three dashes Angostura bitters

Two dashes Bitter Truth orange bitters

Orange peel garnish

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Strain into a well-chilled cocktail glass and express essential oils from an orange peel onto the surface.

Who’s Next:

Bolt has challenged Justin Anderson of the Bedford and John Manion’s forthcoming La Sirena Clandestina with  . . . muddled caviar.
