Mixing it Up: The Manhattan

Mixing it Up: The Manhattan

Working at a five diamond resort I often get Captain’s of Industry asking me what pairs well with cigars, over the years I have collected a catalog of  drinks that I believe pair well and this is the first one. If there’s one drink that’s a classic and represents the apogee of suave style and sophistication, its the Manhattan. The following recipe is my preferred take on the Bourbon Manhattan:

1  1/2 oz bourbon (your choice)- I recommend Makers, or Makers 46 though

2 dashes of bitters

1/4 oz of sweet vermouth

Shake it up and serve in a martini glass or on the rocks. For an added touch garnish it with some brandied cherries.
