This recipe is also perfect for making a barrel aged Manhattan and will fill a one litre mini cask. Obviously, multiply recipe if using a larger cask.
Orange zest twist (discarded) & Luxardo maraschino cherry
Bourbon and rye whiskies form a robust base with hints of both maraschino and cherry brandy liqueurs adding flavour and richness alongside Italian vermouth.
