If you love maraschino cherries, raise your glass to this Cherry Lover’s Manhattan!
This week I bring you a cherrytastic Manhattan cocktail recipe. I first tried a Manhattan years ago and was not impressed with how strong it was; I don’t usually like purely booze drinks. Recently, I have decided (for no good reason) that Manhattans pair well with old-school steak dinners, so I have created my own version that is a little sweeter and goes down more easily. For a more traditional Manhattan, look here (and turn away from what you are about to see). (I know I said last week that I would release a new cocktail recipe every Thursday, but now I think Friday is better. Hopefully that works with all of your cocktail schedules. I’m actually not sure how popular cocktail recipes are with my crowd here, so I would love to see comments letting me know whether or not you are interested.)
Wondering what to do with the rest of that Luxardo? Make your own maraschino cherries!
