Just Because: Manhattan Special Espresso Coffee Soda

Manhattan Special is one of my favorite summertime drinks. It’s been brewed in New York City since 1895 and it contains real coffee, sugar, and carbonated water—no high-fructose corn syrup or artificial flavor. Most importantly, it’s delicious. And that label image is pure 1920s urban romance. You can read more about Manhattan Special, the drink and the company, here.
