It's the combo of sweet and dry vermouths that makes this classic perfect. The unorthodox twist on the old-school Manhattan? The use of both dry and sweet vermouth, in addition to a dash of potent blood orange bitters in place of the usual Angostura. The result is a doubly aromatic, complex take on the classic.
- 3/4 oz Rye whiskey
- 1/4 oz Dry vermouth
- 1/2 oz Sweet vermouth
- 1 dash Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters
- Garnish: 1 None Maraschino cherry
Add the rye and both vermouths to a mixing glass and fill with ice.
Stir, and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
Top with the bitters and garnish with a Maraschino cherry.
