The Manchester

You may need a good cocktail to make it through this heavy (yet incredible) film

Manchester by the Sea is an emotional gut-punch of a film filled with standout performances. Taking inspiration from one of the film’s most resonating scenes, this cocktail features a small sailboat floating across the surface, completing any Oscar-themed bar.
