Orange zest twist (discarded) & Luxardo maraschino cherry
How to make:
Combine all ingredients and stir (without ice). POUR into a litre bottle and leave to chill in a refrigerator. To serve, STIR 2 shots / 2oz / 60ml of the bottled mixture with ice and strain into chilled glass. Makes 16 drinks.
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.
