Ingredients for a Manhattan Cocktail

  • Sweet Vermouth
  • Bourbon Whiskey
  • Angostura® Bitters
  • Maraschino Cherry
  • Orange

Quantities for one drink:

  • 3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 2 1/2 oz Bourbon Whiskey
  • 1 Dash Angostura® Bitters
  • 1 Maraschino Cherry
  • 1 Twist Orange Peel

Blending Instructions:

  • Combine the vermouth, bourbon whiskey, and bitters with 2 - 3 ice cubes in a mixing glass
  • Stir gently, don't bruise the spirits and cloud the drink
  • Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over the cherry
  • Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release the oils but don't drop it in
  • VARIATION: No bitters
  • Substitute a twist of lime for the cherry and orange
  • Hold the lime twist in a lighted match over the drink and then drop it in
  • The heat really zips up the lime flavor
