Kicking off the first of 12 days of a very bourbon Christmas, we have a recipe for an old American classic. The Manhattan. Let’s get started!
● 2 ounces bourbon or rye
● 1-ounce sweet vermouth
● 2 dashes Angostura bitters
● 1 dash orange bitters
● Garnish: brandied cherry
1. Add all the bourbon (or rye), sweet vermouth, and both bitters to a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
2. Strain into a chilled coupe.
3. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
& there you have it! A perfectly garnished Manhattan to make your evening one for the books.
