Friday 5 0’clock Cocktail – Manhattan

Our drinking adviser, Travis, suggested we make our Friday 5 o’clock cocktail a Manhattan – largely because it has Bourbon in it.

Sound like a fine reason to drink a Manhattan to me.

How to Make a Manhattan

  • 2 1/2 oz Bourbon
  • 3/4 oz Vermouth
  • Dash of Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Maraschino Cherry
  • 1 Twist of Orange Peel

Instructions:
Combine the first three ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir gently. Strain the spirits into a chilled coctail glass and add the cherry and orange peel twist.
