This is a variation on the classic Manhattan that introduces maple syrup and swaps black walnut bitters in place of the classic angostura.
Step 1: Step 1: Ingredients
You will need:
Rye whiskey (but if you want to use bourbon, I won't tell anyone)
Cherries to garnish (I'm using sour cherries)
Black Walnut bitters
Glass (I like a coupe glass)
Toothpick (for garnish, if necessary)
Step 2: Step 2: Measure and Mix
1 part syrup
1 part sweet vermouth
5 parts rye
1 - 3 dashes of Black Walnut bitters
Fill the shaker with ice. Add the ingredients. Shake until the shaker is frosted over.
Step 3: Step 3: Pour, Garnish and Enjoy!
Strain the drink into your glass, add the cherries and enjoy!
