Tuesday Treat

Manhattan Cocktail (Serves 1)

I thought I’d start the new year with a classic cocktail, The Manhattan is a real treat for bourbon whiskey lovers. I particularly love the maraschino cherry garnish which gives you an additional sweet treat! If you’re currently keeping to a ‘dry January’, please don’t let me tempt you into breaking your resolution(!) – this Manhattan would be a great way to celebrate February 1st!…

60ml bourbon (I like Makers Mark)

30ml sweet red vermouth

3 dashes of Angostura bitters

A handful of ice cubes

1 Maraschino cherry

  1. Combine the bourbon, vermouth and bitters in a cocktail mixing glass (or a tall glass/ small jug). Add the ice cubes and stir well, until chilled.
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
