Makes 1 cocktail
Some Manhattan recipes call for rye whisky, but I prefer the caramel flavor and color of bourbon. The classic garnish for this is a maraschino cherry, but for a new twist, you could use a fresh cherry that’s been soaked in Cherry Syrup.

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • Dash of Angostura bitters
  • Maraschino cherry, for garnish

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail mixing glass filled with ice and stir. Strain into an “up” or martini glass (also called a cocktail glass). Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
