ABC Kitchen Rye Manhattan
A whiskey distilled from a grain mash that contains at least 51% rye, a grass and member of the wheat tribe 'Triticeae.'
A fruity, rich and sweet vermouth that dates back to 1786. Thought of as a sweet vermouth with added vanilla; great with whiskey. We treat this like sweet vermouth.
An aromatic bitters made by Fee Brothers. Made with Angostura bark, along with other spices and citrus oils.
A concentrated fruit syrup made from cherry pulp. Many sources simply say to take the residual syrup found in jarred cherries.
In cocktails, cherries are sweetened in a brine, like maraschino cherries (marr-ə-SKEE-noh) or in brandy, like brandied cherries. They are usually used as a garnish, muddled into the cocktail, or used simple for their sweetened brine.
Combine all ingredients except cherries in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with one or more cherries. #shake #straight
