“A COCKTAIL IS A STIMULATING LIQUOR, COMPOSED OF SPIRITS OF ANY KIND, SUGAR, WATER & BITTERS.”'Tis the season to eat, drink and be merry! There are so many parties this time of year, so much fun!!
One of my favorite Winter drinks is a Manhattan. I kicked it up a notch this year and I can tell you, this is delicious! This Manhattan has a sweet fiery kick and it's the perfect way to end a day and start a Happy Hour!
Perfect Maple Manhattan
2 ounces Southern Comfort
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
2 dashes bitters (I used Scrappy's)
Add the Southern Comfort, vermouth, maple syrup and Scrappy's bitters into cocktail shaker. Shake it up, pour over good ice in a large and manly rocks glass. Add skewered cherries and drink.
PS I have received several emails about the beautiful decorative lantern above. The website on Etsy that sells this lantern and beautiful themed wreaths is https://www.etsy.com/shop/tresjolietresor
