Ames's Bourbon Manhattan

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Winemaker Ames Morison's father is a Manhattan fanatic who carries a laminated card with illustrations and directions for the uninitiated barkeep. The most important rules: Don't over-ice, don't shake, and do serve the drink straight up in a wineglass so not a drop gets spilled.

  1. Ice
  2. 3 ounces bourbon
  3. 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
  4. 6 dashes bitters
  5. 1 Maraschino cherry
  1. Fill a shaker with ice. Add the bourbon, vermouth and bitters and stir well. Strain into a wineglass and add the cherry.
