The holiday season is nearly upon us! Wow your holiday guests this year by mixing up a batch of NoLo Bistro & Bar’s famous Spiced Cherry Manhattans, one of our most popular cocktails, perfect for entertaining. Recipe courtesy of NoLo’s resident mixologist Jared Bracci.
NoLo Spiced Cherry Manhattan
1.5 ounces MadRiver Distillers rye bourbon
1 ounce Antica Formula sweet vermouth
4 drops Woodford Reserve Spiced Cherry Bitters
2 Luxardo maraschino cherries
¼ of an orange
½ teaspoon brown sugar
Muddle one cherry, the orange quarter and brown sugar in the bottom of a large glass. After they are well combined, add rye, vermouth and bitters. Fill glass with ice and stir to combine and chill. Strain into a small rocks glass over fresh ice (NoLo uses one large, spherical ice cube) and add the second cherry for garnish. Enjoy!
