Cocktail du jour: The Hudson Clover

It's Friday, which can only mean one thing at C&G. Cocktail time. This week we have two guest bartenders who have worked very hard to recreate a drink they discovered at the wonderful waterfront restaurant, MP Taverna in Irvington. Grandma C&G fell in love with the spicy Manhattan and its key ingredient, clove infused bourbon.

Infusing your own alcohol is pretty easy to do. Grandma C&G put a handful of cloves into a bottle of bourbon and after about five days it was ready to use. Papa C&G took care of the rest of the experimenting and came up with this tasty version.
