This was inspired by my fave cocktail and follows the structure of a Manhattan. I used all Australian ingredients and thought the most famous Australian associated with Manhattan is Crocodile Dundee so named it after his most famous line: "That's not a knife".



 30 ml Australian Whisky(Starward Nova)
 30 ml Coconut Rum
 22.50 ml Sweet Vermouth
 15 ml Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 2 dashes Orange Bitters



Smoke a glass with Rosemary (easiest method is to burn Rosemary then cover it with a double rocks glass to capture the smoke)


Add ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and stir


Place large rock of ice in the smoked double rocks glass


Strain ingredients over ice


Garnish with Rosemary and cinnamon stick

    What’s the main difference between the NOVA and TWO FOLD? I have a little nip of TWO FOLD I could try it with πŸ™‚

      They’re both good – I find two fold to be softer than the Nova. Definitely try it.
