Straight Up Manhattan
makes 2, or 1 really good drink
2 parts blended Canadian whiskey (we have moved to the Canadian Club, aged 10 years)
3/4 part sweet vermouth
3 drops bitters
Maraschino cherry juice to taste
Maraschino cherry as garnish
First, let your martini glasses get really cold in the freezer - this is key! In a cocktail shaker with ice, add whiskey, vermouth, bitters, and cherry juice. Shake like crazy, pour into frosty martini glass and serve with a Maraschino cherry. Enjoy!!
