5 o’clock cocktail || manhattan
I am in Manhattan this weekend celebrating with the girls [from Canada and Australia] as a lead up to my 40th birthday. YAY! So thought it was apropos to share my husbands favorite cocktail ‘du-jour’. The Manhattan.
Don’t skimp on cheap overly sweet and bright red looking maraschino cherries. Look for the dark rich and full of flavor imported variety from France or Italy, like these ones that you can buy by clicking here. If you are in Chicago stop by the Matchbox [via] and pick up a jar, they sell them for around $16.00.
For some additional inspiration on whiskey based drinks and for ‘in-the-manner-of’ Manhattan recipes check out 12 Bottle Bar [via], they have some great posts on historical references to cocktails too.
