My Well Crafted Manhattan

I entered a Woodford Reserve Mixology Competition almost a year ago. Or in a layman’s terms, bourbon cocktail comp to see the most creatively inspired alterations or recreations of the classic Manhattan Cocktail.

I came 3rd out of 10. Not bad…

Thought i’d share my recipe…


2oz Woodford Reserve Bourbon

1oz Luxardo Maraschino Liquor

12 fresh cherries

dash of grenadine

Orange Zest


Muddle cherries in a Boston glass. add ingredients minus orange zest. Shake and strain into Martini glass. Flame orange peel and use as garnish.
