Recipe For Cherry Manhattan Cocktail

Happy Hour: The Big Cherry

Though I made cherry bounce as one of this year's edible gifts, I was sure to save a bottle for myself. Delicious on its own, this old-school cordial is also great mixed into classic cocktails.

After sipping a superb cherry bounce old-fashioned, I decided to create a cherry version of the Manhattan, which, in the spirit of the Big Apple, I dubbed the Big Cherry.

It has the same ingredients as the old-fashioned, but in different proportions. For a special touch, try using brandied cherries instead of the usual maraschino. To get the recipe, read more.
