Cocktail anyone? I'll take a Manhattan if you please...


Anytime of year is THE perfect time of year for a cocktail! Greeting your guests at the door with a signature cocktail makes everyone instantly feel welcome... Try serving up a batch of these delicious Manhattans and you will be a star Host/Hostess.

This recipe is from Bourbon Barrel; one of the many lines we feature in our gourmet/entertaining area, that is aged, smoked, or infused with Woodford Reserve Premium Bourbon products and methods - and I have to say, it is my personal favourite recipe for the perfect Manhattan.

 

Recipe (Makes 1 cocktail):

2 oz      Bourbon

1 oz      Sweet Vermouth

2 Dash  Cherry Bitters

2-3        Bourbon Cherries (skewered on cocktail pick)

Ice cubes

 

Instructions:

Mix all ingredients together (except for the Cherries) in a tall glass with ice. Strain mixture into an "old fashioned" over 1 - 2 ice cubes or in a Martini glass (neat). Garnish with the Bourbon Cherries

Sip, savour, and enjoy!
