Manhattan After Dark

A Manhattan is a classic cocktail that was invented by Dr. Iain Marshall in the early 1870’s at The Manhattan Club in New York City. During a recent visit to the legendary Anchor Spa in New Haven I became inspired. What emerged was this painting of the cocktail. I used the Procreate app as usual and various oil painting techniques. The background is of various buildings in Manhattan at night. Instructions to make your own Manhattan can be found here.
