This tropical rendition of the classic Manhattan cocktail is made with rum instead of bourbon. Serve this recipe to follow a hearty Cuban sandwich.

What to buy: Flor de Caña is a wonderful gold rum from Nicaragua that we think makes a delightfully dry Manhattan, perfect for those who don’t favor the sweetness of the regular version.
