This is a variation on the classic Manhattan that I developed because I also like the Old Fashioned cocktail. You will need a cocktail shaker.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup ice cubes, or as desired
  • 2 dashes bitters (such as Angostura®)
  • 2 fluid ounces bourbon
  • 1 fluid ounce orange-flavored liqueur (such as Cointreau®)
  • 1 dash maraschino cherry juice
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Fill 1/3 of a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake bitters over ice and pour in bourbon. Pour orange-flavored liqueur and maraschino cherry juice into shaker. Cover shaker and shake vigorously. Pour drink into a martini glass and garnish with maraschino cherry.

  1. A nice sweet Manhattan...nice change from the vermouth.
  2. Delicious! Used a great local bourbon and triple sec. not too sweet.
  3. This was really good! It packs a punch! I used Triple Sec for the orange liqueur. And we had the luxardo cherries so used those instead of maraschino. Yummy!
  4. I used Jack Daniel's and Cointreau. While this is sweet (which one must expect from the ingredients) it is very delicious! Thanks BETSYMAT!
