[Note: for our one-stop-shop of Manhattan preparation info, check out our Classic Manhattan post]
A Manhattan is among the most classic of classic cocktails. The standard recipe is Rye, sweet vermouth, and a dash of bitters with a cherry. My drink tonight illustrates how brands matter, because it was amazing.
- 2 oz Russell’s Kentucky Rye
- 1 oz Punt e Mes
- 1/4 oz Amaro Ramazzotti (bitters)
- Luxardo cherry with a little bit of the juice
