Uncle Louie’s Classic Manhattan

Uncle Louie left the farm and headed North for work in the auto industry.  You might say he became ‘citified’ over the years…but, who doesn’t love a classic Manhattan…popular history suggests it was created in the late 1860’s in a bar on Broadway near Houston Street….of course, in none other than Manhattan NY…

2 oz of Bourbon

1 oz sweet vermouth

2 dashes of Angostura Bitters

Ice

Luxardo Cherries

In a large shaker, add bourbon and vermouth.  Add a dash or two of bitters.  Add ice and shake together.  Strain into martini glass and add a delicious Luxardo cherry, or three!!
