Get into the spirit — or soothe your end-of-summer blues —with Whiskeys on the Water’s variation on the traditional Manhattan. The Teacher’s Pet is appropriately served with the motto, “Time to sit up and pay attention!” Simple, strong, and subtly sweet, this cocktail with a twist could be a new fall favorite.
