Cocktail Inspiration:

For a while now a friend has been trying to get me to make a cocktail inspired by his gamertag. (MessyMonk) While playing with some simple crafty ingredients for this contest I realized alot of these ingredients had ties to monasteries. They combined to form a boosy, complex, and bright Manhattan variant that I thought was worthy of praise.
