Friday night. The sound of taxicabs, people and the bustle of city streets fade from your consciousness. As soon as the big double doors are opened, you are transported to another era -- to the big city steakhouse of years gone by. The smell of marbled beef-over-fire awakens your senses. The white tablecloths, the big leather seats, waiters in tuxedos, and the melodic chime of ice cubes kissing each other in a rocks glass filled with aged bourbon. Back then, this experience wasn't just about food, but was life itself. At the table you sip on your Manhattan (made to perfection). Suddenly, the aroma of charred beef fills your nostrils as the hotplate of aged beef is set before you. You breathe deep and know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that at this moment, you are truly living!
As Amber Button and CaJohn Hard reminisced about the magic era of big city steakhouses of the 1950s and 1960s, they began talking about the tastes and scents that could bring back a little bit of that experience. The result is a sauce named to honor the generation who brought so much joy to so many people by providing a special evening in a special place. The sauce they created is called Manhattan.
Manhattan is a sauce made to make beef come alive! Infusing a classic Kentucky bourbon whiskey like only CaJohn can, coupled with Amber's touch of marinated aromatic cherry -- smoothed with a hint of vanilla bean, this sauce captures the richness of a time gone by.
Barbecue Sauce? Steak Sauce? Call it what you like, but what they've really done is capture time in a bottle.
Manhattan Black Cherry Bourbon BBQ Sauce combines the sweetness of the black cherries and vanilla mellowed Bourbon to create this Kansas City style sauce that is sure to become a staple in your BBQ arsenal!
