"This is an iconic NYC beverage. I would say, buy the real thing! But for purposes of Culinary Quest 3, going to try this homemade version, side by side with a bottle of the real thing that I've been hiding from DH for a month. Sounds very, very interesting!!! Makes 4 10 oz servings. NOTE: Time does not include fermentation and chilling time - 2 days! This will NOT be as sweet as the real Manhattan Special, but it DOES have a stronger coffee flavor. Adjust to your liking!"
Boil 1 cup of water with the sugar, remove from heat and stir in the espresso powder.
Add the remaining cold water to the hot syrup, sprinkle in the yeast and pour the whole mess into a plastic soda bottle (it won’t fill the bottle, the extra room is for carbonation gasses).
Cap tightly and leave at room temperature for two days then stick in the fridge long enough to chill.
*It’ll have a huge foamy head like a stout beer when you crack it open, just squeeze that out of the bottle to get to the good stuff. This recipe makes a strong coffee flavor but not too sweet version. Tweak espresso powder and sugar to taste.*
