School got out early today! It's a cold and rainy night here and it's supposed to freeze up overnight. Our plans were cancelled - so it's time for my "Friday Night Cocktail"...a Manhattan! It's a perfect night for my favorite winter cocktail! I absolutely love this drink! It is a perfect cocktail to sip by the fire on a cold winter night! Cheers to a wonderful weekend!
Classic Manhattan Cocktail
1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth
3 1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey (or any other Whiskey)
2 to 4 dashes Angostura Bitters
Cherry or two
Fill a mixing glass with ice.
Add the vermouth, whiskey and bitters to the glass and stir.
Strain into a chilled glass or pour contents over ice.
Garnish with a cherry. If you prefer it to be sweeter, you can also add a bit of cherry juice.
What could be better than sitting by the fire on a cold winter night with Manhattan in hand. I am in heaven and am so excited for the weekend! I hope that you have a great one!
