The Makers Mark Manhattan is a staple in my life. Sure I love my wife and kids, but I have to honest when I say that I love a Manhattan at any time of the day. This is a drink that says, "I am in control". That is until I polish of my fourth in one hour and then I can't control anything.
- 2 measure of Bourbon (I am partial to Makers Mark)
- 1 measure rosso vermouth
- 1 dash of bitters
- 1 maraschino cherry
Pull out the shaker and load it with about a glassful of ice, pop in the bourbon and a tiny bit of vermouth and the dash of bitters. Shake a bit, for about 30 seconds. Pour it into a rocky glass and unload the cherry. Now sit down and enjoy the evening.
