I’ve always adored old school cocktails. Simple spirits, eggs whites, simple syrup and I’m in love. The more spirit forward the better. Tonight I decided to end my weekend with a Manhattan. Sweet, simple, delicious.
Manhattan Cocktail Recipe
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.
