Two weeks ago I made my own boozy bourbon soaked cherries and popped them open last night. Let me say, they were delish (pat on the back). I’ve mentioned my love for Manhattan’s several times and thought I would share my go-to recipe at home. Cheers to August and a great week ahead!
- 2 dashes orange bitters (traditionally made using angostura bitters, but I prefer orange)
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
- 2 1/2 ounces whiskey or bourbon
- 1 cherry (bourbon soaked were used in this drink)
Fill a short glass 2/3 full with ice. Add bitters, vermouth, and bourbon. Add cherry (and crush it against the side of the glass with a spoon). Stir and sip.
