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
- Combine the bourbon, vermouth and bitters in a cocktail mixing glass (or any other type of glass). Add the ice cubes and stir well.
- Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
