What’s your favorite drink and why?  Share the recipe.

My favorite drink is a classic Manhattan – on the rocks!  Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Ice
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Sweet vermouth
  • Whiskey (I prefer rye whiskey)
  • Agnostura bitters

Preparation:

You can put the ice in a cocktail shaker if you want, but I usually take cubes straight out of the freezer.  I add about 1/3 of a cup of whiskey (more or less as desirable).   Add 1 oz. of sweet vermouth, 3 dashes of bitters, and 1 or 2 Maraschino Cherries.  Mix lightly with a cocktail straw or spoon.

Enjoy!
