Ah the Manhattan! What could be better after a long day than this simple three-ingredient whisky martini. Yes, you read that right - the Manhattan's proportions are the same as the original wet martini: two parts spirit to one part vermouth. Only the vermouth in this case is our rich, Mommenpop Blood Orange aperitif spiced with black pepper, rose hips, and cardamom. We love how the woodsy notes in the whisky play off the dark spices.
2 oz scotch or bourbon
1 oz Mommenpop Blood Orange
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
Stir with 10 ice cubes for 10 seconds.
Strain into a chilled coupe glass.
Garnish with an orange twist expressed over the glass and a luxardo cherry.
