The Manhattan, The Prime Rib( Colby Ware/Baltimore Sun / September 4, 2012 )
How to Make The Manhattan
2 parts Maker's Mark Bourbon
1 part Dolin Sweet Vermouth
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 Luxardo Original maraschino cherry
Shake or stir all together for 30 seconds. Strain into chilled Manhattan glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry (served up, no ice).
