Uncle Louie’s Classic Manhattan

Uncle Louie left the farm and headed North for work in the auto industry. You might say he became ‘citified’ over the years, but who doesn’t love a classic Manhattan? Popular history suggests it was created in the late 1860s in a bar on Broadway near Houston Street in none other than Manhattan, of course.
