Cherry Ice Manhattan
One of the feature cocktails for Virginia Spirits Month 2017. We went back to the roots to refresh the greatest cocktail in the world – local rye whiskey, vermouth, house made bitters and some homemade Brandied Cherry Ice Cubes! Yum!
2 oz Catoctin Creek Rye
1 oz Cinzano Vermouth
4 dash House made dark bitters (or Angostura)
3 ea Brandied Cherry Ice cubes
Mix the rye, vermouth & bitter with ice in a mixing glass. Muddle the cherry ice cubes and then pour cocktail over. Stir lightly and serve.
