The Manhattan is the perfect drink for a cool Summer afternoon in the city. We’ve been in love with this drink for many years (oh, the stories it could tell…) For extra sweetness, our version uses orange bitters and a splash of the tipsy cherries juice (the ones marinated in whiskey!) Here’s the recipe:
Makes 2 cocktails
- 12 oz of Maker’s Mark
- 4 oz of Sweet Vermouth (Rosso)
- A few drops of Orange Bitters
- Tipsy Cherries and lemon twists for garnish
Add the wet ingredients (and a splash of the cherry juice) to a shaker filled with ice and shake well. Serve in cocktail glasses and garnish with a cherry and lemon twist. Except for maybe the vodka martini, this is the best drink in the world. Here’s to Manhattan!
