Cocktail: Winter Manhattan

Winter Manhattan cocktail

Take the Manhattan to a winter place. A place that's a little smoky, a little woodsy. It's like a drink you could enjoy in your mountain cabin with a warm, crackling fire in the fireplace while a soft snow falls outside. That's the idea behind the Winter Manhattan. Cheers.

Cocktail: Winter Manhattan

2 oz. Rittenhouse rye whiskey
1 oz. Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
2 dashes Fee Brothers whiskey barrel-aged bitters
1 tsp. Laphroaig Islay Scotch
Bing cherry, garnish

Combine whiskey, vermouth and bitters in a cocktail mixing glass with ice. Stir until very cold, about 30 seconds. Pour the Scotch into a chilled cocktail glass. Swirl the Scotch around the glass and pour out any excess. Strain the cocktail into the glass and garnish with a bing cherry.
