Gourmet Veggie Mama

Trip to Manhattan

This week’s cocktail is a classic — the Manhattan. We like to imbibe these when watching Mad Men, and/or with a nice bowl of popcorn… which has been referred to around these parts as “a classic evening.” Yes, we are nerds.

Hubby is the Manhattan mixmaster around these parts, but I swear by his recipe. I like mine a wee bit sweeter than he does, but that can be adjusted easily enough.

Drink up.


2 parts bourbon (we use Maker’s Mark)
1 part sweet vermouth
1 part dry vermouth
dash bitters

Combine ingredients over ice, shake and strain into a cocktail glass, or serve over ice. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
