Winter in Manhattan

23 December 2009
Russ Faulk, Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, Grillmaster

It wasn't until two months ago at a kite art exhibit opening that I had my first Manhattan. The wheels began turning shortly thereafter, and the result is this wonderful winter weather treat. Tart cherry juice and Amaretto join the usual Manhattan ingredients for a deep and warming flavor.




    • 1 ounce bottled tart cherry juice
    • 3 ounces Amaretto liqueur
    • 2 ounces Knob Creek whiskey
    • 1 ounce dry vermouth
    • 1/4 teaspoon blood orange bitters
    • 2 fresh cherries with stems for garnish (optional)
    • Ice


Fill two cocktail glasses with ice water to chill them. Combine all ingredients except the cherries in a cocktail shaker with ice.

Stir to thoroughly chill. Empty the ice water from the chilled cocktail glasses.

Strain the cocktails into the glasses and garnish with a fresh cherry.
