Beef Fat Washed Manhattan: Elevating Flavours Whilst Mitigating Waste

In the realm of mixology, innovation knows no bounds. Our team explored a Beef fat washed Manhattan, a cocktail crafted with precision, exclusivity, and a commitment to gastronomical sustainability. This unique concoction not only tastes great, but also contributes to mitigating waste.

Understanding the Beef Fat Washed Manhattan

At first glance, the concept of beef fat washing may seem unconventional, but its impact is undeniable. By infusing brown butter with otherwise discarded beef fat and Shortcross whiskey, our team created a unique flavor profile that elevates the classic Manhattan cocktail to new heights.

During the fat washing process, most of the fat is extracted back out, resulting in a slightly altered texture that provides a silkier mouthfeel. The primary benefit, however, lies in the addition of a savoury and beefy undernote to the cocktail, adding depth and complexity to every sip.

1. Infuse Brown Butter with Beef Fat

Our team began by combining brown butter with Beef Fat and trimmings, allowing the flavours to meld together.

2. Mix the Whiskey with the Infusion

Slowly whisk the Shortcross Whiskey into the Brown Butter infusion. Ensure Butter infusion is still hot at this point.

3. Store in a Jar for 48 hours

Transfer the mixture into a jar and let it sit for 48 hours to allow the flavors to infuse thoroughly.

4. Freeze, Seperate & Filter

After the infusion period, let the fat separate in the freezer before carefully scooping out and filtering out any remaining fat particles.

5. Use the Whiskey Butter

Instead of discarding the Brown butter you removed from the whiskey, use it as a base for Shortcross Peppercorn sauce!
