Manhattan, Sweet

2.25 oz
A whiskey made primarily from a corn grain mash, aged in charred oak barrels.
1 oz
Also known as Vermouth di Torino, Italian vermouth, rosso and red vermouth; these vermouth have been sweetened with cane sugar or caramelized sugar, usually giving the vermouth 10-15% sugar and a slightly reddish brown color.
1 dash
A concentrated fruit syrup made from cherry pulp. Many sources simply say to take the residual syrup found in jarred cherries.
3 dash
A concentrated aromatic bitters made in Trinidad from water, ethanol, gentian and other herbs and spices; used in many classic cocktails like the Manhattan.
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.

Stir ingredients together with ice. Strain into chilled glass. Garnish with a cherry. #stir #straight

Substituting bourbon for rye and adding syrup from a jar of Maraschino cherries makes this variant sweeter than the traditional Manhattan.
