Not Quite a Manhattan


2 oz Rye Whiskey
¾ oz Sweet Vermouth
¼ oz  Maraschino Liqueur
2 dashes Orange Bitters
2 dashes Aromatic Bitters

What To Do

Stir with cracked ice in a chilled stirring glass. Strain in a Nick and Nora glass or coupe glass. Garnish with some Luxardo cherries.

A Few Words

I like using the traditional rye whiskey for this drink, though a bourbon or other form of whiskey would work. The key is to make sure you stir it enough to chill the drink properly and to get the proper dilution. A great play on the Manhattan. Bitter. Strong. Not too sweet. But slightly herbal from the Maraschino. Cheers!
