We’ve got the city of Dallas in our Manhattan, literally. (The definition of serendipity, ha!) I know we aren’t the only ones who have seen people order a Manhattan in movies or tv shows and wonder what it tasted like. Right? I can’t believe with the whiskey lovers we are we have never tried one. Well, today that changed!
It’s safe to say that the Manhattan is now one of our favorite cocktails. The blend of the sweet vermouth and the bing cherries give it the taste of a cocktail without the sugar overload. So incredibly simple to make too.
2 ounces rye whiskey or bourbon (must be a rye – we used Two Stars bourbon)
1 ounce sweet vermouth
2 dashes angostura bitters
bing cherries to garnish and add in for extra flavor
This drink will have you feeling city-chic in 5 seconds flat, all you need to top it off is a perfect city view.
Stay Classy & Enjoy!
