Cocktail Time: Manhattan Recipe

Happy Friday everyone! It’s cocktail’o’clock here at work. The hubby and I are the last ones here and I’ve got Blister in the Sun pumping on the speakers in the office and we’re drinking Manhattan’s, my go-to cocktail. Just in case you don’t know the glories of this simple yet complicated drink, here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 3/4 oz sweet vermouth
  • 2 1/2 oz bourbon (I like Bulleit)
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • 1 3 maraschino cherries

Directions

1. Combine vermouth, bourbon, and bitters over ice  in mixing glass, stir gently.
2. Place the cherries into cocktail glass and strain whiskey mixture into glass
3. Drink. Repeat.

Jeska used to steal the whiskey soaked cherries from her grandparents drinks when she was younger... now she demands at least 3 cherries for all whiskey drinks. Coincidence? Learn more at jeska.org.

  1. So the recipe I actually made today was 5oz bulleit / 2oz sweet vermouth / 6 dashes angostura for 2 manhattans. I think I’ll be doing 6oz bulleit / 1oz vermouth next time though.
