Mad Over Our Manhattans



Let's bring it back, way back! To the late 1800s with this one. Although it's classically been known as “the gentleman's drink” we have seen some fine looking ladies enjoy a few of these. It's a simple mix of your choice of rye, sweet and dry vermouth, three dashes of angostura bitters, one dash of orange bitters and finished with one brandied cherry. I have been guilty of using Rhubarb bitters occasionally in place of the orange. Stir, serve up in cocktail glass or enjoy it on the rocks in a lowball glass.
