This Black and Red recipe is a close variation of the Manhattan and differs only by specifying the whiskey.

Black Bush is a sweeter Irish whiskey which works really well with the sweet vermouth in this drink. The bitters are an accent and tame some of the sweetness, I like the complexity of Angostura here but Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6 adds an interesting citrus note that's nice as well.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice.

  2. Strain into an old-fashioned glass.

  3. Garnish with a cherry.
