This Cherry Manhattan perfectly blends the warmth of bourbon with the sweetness of vermouth and cherries. A sublime cocktail to wind down your day.
With the holidays swirling around us sometimes we need an easy and lovely cocktail to lead us out of our hectic day and into the evening. A wonderful, classic is the Manhattan.
This recipe sweetens it up a bit, THE Cherry Manhattan. There is something about the warmth of the bourbon and the sweetness of the vermouth and cherry juice that makes this a perfect holiday and winter time drink.
Classically the Manhattan is served up and in a martini glass, however, you can also serve this in an old-fashioned glass over ice, if you prefer. The ice will cut the alcohol somewhat as it melts. So if you aren’t used to drinking whiskey cocktails, this might be the right choice for you.
And if you can get your hands on these Chukar Cherries dessert cherries, well, you are in for a treat!
If you are making our Crown Roast of Pork dinner, this is a Gr8 starter cocktail.
