A round of Maple Manhattans, please! Here, rye whiskey teams up with dry vermouth and sugary maple syrup to bring you this strong yet slightly sweet version of the classic whiskey cocktail.
- 2 ounces rye whiskey or bourbon
- 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
- 1 ounce real maple syrup
- 2 dashes bitters
- cocktail cherries
- To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine whiskey, vermouth and syrup. Shake vigorously.
- Meanwhile, add ice to a rocks glass (if desired) and fill with cocktail. Add 2 dashes bitter on top of each drink. Garnish with a cocktail cherry.
