Manhattan

The last few times I’ve been out to dinner I have indulged in one of my favorite drinks–a Manhattan. It’s smooth, it’s strong, and it’s delicious. I decided to pick up the ingredients so I can make them at home if I want. I’ve always loved the flavor of rye whiskey so I used it for this drink. Splurging on really good cherries for this cocktail is a must because the bright pink maraschino cherries just don’t work. The deep red bing jarred cherries are the best if you can find them.

  1. This was my parents drink of choice but one has to be careful with them – they would often get to my mom.
