Asimov enjoys a McKenzie rye Manhattan

Granted, the Diner’s Journal post on July 16th focused primarily on vermouth, but it’s always exciting to get a mention in the New York Times!

ABC Kitchen Rye Whiskey Manhattan

  • 1 1/2 ounces McKenzie rye whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce Carpano Antica vermouth
  • 2 dashes Fee Brothers Old Fashion bitters
  • 1 teaspoon brandied cherry juice
  • 3 brandied cherries, for garnish.
Method
  • Combine ingredients in a glass shaker with ice. Stir for 30 seconds and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with cherries.

My favorite quote, “Of course, what makes this particular Manhattan so good is not merely the vermouth, but the combination of superb ingredients in it.”
