You don’t need to be in the five boroughs to enjoy this sophisticated tipple.
Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with ice.
Stir, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a cherry.
(If you prefer a dry Manhattan, use dry vermouth instead of sweet and garnish with a lemon twist.).

I must be nuts. I've become obsessed with bitters. I agree with Dave to add a couple of drops of Cherry Bitters but I don't stop there. I also add a couple of dashes each of Angostura, Regan's Orange, Aztec Chocolate and Black Walnut. To top it off, I add, more for color than anything else, a drop of Luxardo Cherry syrup. The complexity and depth of taste along with the seductive color of my Manhattan will knock your socks off. Just don't add too much of the bitters-be subtle. Oh and yeah, the cocktail gets a Luxardo Cherry.
Try Fee Brothers Cherry Bitters and Dolan Sweet Vermouth which is highly recommended by Bill Samuels of Makers Mark fame. Gives the bourbon the respect that it deserves.
