Difficulty

Easy

Ingredients

  • 75ml bourbon
  • 50ml sweet vermouth
  • 3 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • ½ tsp maraschino liqueur
  • 2-4 cocktail cherries
  • 2 slices of orange zest

Method

First, choose your glasses – small coupes work well. Put the glasses into the fridge for at least 30 mins.

Pack a cocktail tin (or measuring jug) with ice. Pour over the bourbon, sweet vermouth, Angostura bitters and maraschino. Stir for 1 min. Sit a cocktail cherry in each chilled glass or skewer a couple on a cocktail stick. Strain the Manhattan into the glasses.

Use a vegetable peeler to remove two slices of orange zest. Twist each over the top of a drink then run it around the rim of the glass.
