Heather Storm Gets the Mixdown for Manhattan Month


Our favorite foodie, cocktail host, sommelier, and girl next door is putting meaning behind her Manhattan cocktails this October for Manhattan Month.
Heather Storm took time out from exploring America’s local culture in Drive Yourself Local, her classic Mustang-driven travel series, to mix up a signature Manhattan for our annual Manhattan Month.

“Made with entirely small-batch local brands, this fruity all-American Manhattan reminds me of a boozy Cherry Vanilla Coke.”
