Black Barrel Manhattan

Alcoholic Cocktails Drink

Glass: Martini

1 Servings
50ml Jameson Black Barrel
10ml Sweet Vermouth (my preference for this drink - Punt Des Mes)
2-3 dashes orange bitters
1 orange zest
1 Maraschino cherry
Cubed ice
  1. In a Mixing Glass, pour in the Black Barrel, then the Vermouth, followed by the bitters
  2. Fill the glass 2/3 of the way with ice and stir. This method of mixing is to control the dilution from the ice whilst mixing together our key ingredients. If at any point the ice falls below the liquid, top the mixing glass up with more ice
  3. Stir to your own taste, but the preference is 40 to 60 seconds with regular tastes
  4. Strain cocktail into a chilled Martini glass, and gently squeeze the orange zest over and around the edge of the glass. Discard the zest and add the cherry; letting it sink to the bottom of the glass
