Fancy Pants Manhattan

What the heck Philadelphia. It's not suppose to be 92 and humid as heck in MAY. This does not bode well for the summer. Plus I'm out of tonic. Sighs. In order to beat the heat Mr. Lawyer mixed us up some these beauties. The vermouth takes the edge off but it still has a nice burn. Top it off with the fancy Luxurado cherries Mr. Lawyer got for Christmas and BAM! Delicious.
Classic Manhattan
(from the Ultimate Bar Book)
2 ounces rye
3/4 ounces sweet vermouth
2 to 3 dashes Angostura bitters
1 to 2 maraschino cherry
1. Stir the liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice.
2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
3. Garnish with the cherries.

  1. I am so waiting for a Cosmo from the American now. Hope George is still the barkeep.
