Maker's Mark Manhattan

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Manhattans are clearly not Southern, but many Southerners love them. Maker's Mark's Bill Samuels, Jr., says, "I spent 40 years screwing around before figuring out the perfect recipe."

  1. 2 1/2 ounces Maker's Mark bourbon
  2. 1/2 ounce French sweet vermouth
  3. 2 dashes Fee Brothers cherry bitters (see Note)
  4. 4–5 drops maraschino cherry juice
  5. Maraschino cherry
  6. Ice
  1. In a shaker with ice, combine Maker's Mark bourbon, French sweet vermouth, Fee Brothers cherry bitters, and maraschino cherry juice. Stir, then serve in a cocktail glass with a maraschino cherry.
