Bottoms Up

The Classic Manhattan Cocktail
Today we're focussing on the Manhattan cocktail.  I just adored the scene in the film Some Like It Hot when the Sweet Sue's Society Sincopaters decided to make these cocktails in their hot water bottles on the train from Chicago to Florida.  

Make one (or two) for yourself using this simple method. . .

As the picture says, you'll need 1.5oz whiskey, 3/4oz sweet vermouth, ice and cherries. Mix in a cocktail shaker, strain and garnish with a cherry.  So simple and so sweet!
