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
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!!
