At the heart of the Screech Manhattan is Newfoundland Screech, a Jamaican-style rum that offers dense notes of spice, brown sugar and caramel.

Evened out by Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry Rouge and orange bitters, this cocktail goes down smooth, so you don’t need the tolerance of a sailor to enjoy this feisty libation.


2oz Newfoundland screech rum
1oz Dolin red vermouth
3 drops Angostura bitters


  1. Add all ingredients to a shake with ice.
  2. Shake until combined and strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice.
  3. Garnish with Luxardo maraschino cherries on a skewer.
