Manhattan Cocktail Recipe
Last summer, my husband Raoul and I attended a fantastic cocktail making class at Cuoco restaurant here in Seattle.  One of their bartenders, Cody Goodwin, shared his cocktail recipe for a Manhattan, which he called Summer in the City.  It’s a nice stiff drink that goes down real easy.  His recommended garnish was a twist of orange peel.  As I have shared before, I am crazy for cherries, and have my homemade brandied cherries on hand.  They add even more zing to this lovely cocktail. They are posing for their picture here.  In real life you want to add them to your cocktail as soon as possible, so they can start sharing their flavor.

Marvelous Manhattan Cocktail Recipe

  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce Amaro Nonino
  • 3/4 ounce Carpano Antica (sweet vermouth)
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

Stir with ice, and pour into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with one to three brandied cherries. Here’s the instructions on how to make your own.  Or you can use a twist of orange peel for the garnish.

(Side note:  you can omit the Amaro Nonino, and up the amount of Carpano Antica Vermouth to 1 ounce.)
