The Manhattan Project

It's not hard to find me at a party... people often describe me as "that guy over there with the fancy drink." 

(Ok, some people refer to me as "there guy drinking that gay-drink," or "the guy with the chick-drink," but I would like to mention that there's an inerrant flaw in the logic that states that a drink at 38.8% alcohol is somehow wussy in comparison to American beer... but that's a rant for another time!)

Anyways, I'd like to share with you the makings of a drink that I've loved since I was [19]. (For legal reasons I should just put in the age of majority here)

It's called the Manhattan and no one is entirely too sure where it comes from. What we do know about it is that it's quick, easy, delicious and will kick your [donkey] if you're not careful!

The recipe is simple:
  1. 5cl Rye or Canadian Blended Whisky
  2. 2cl Sweet Red Vermouth
  3. Dash of Angostura bitters
  4. Cherry.

All-in-all it amounts to a drink that's spicy, sweet and will more than likely leave you wanting more... or after a few, wanting floor.

To all of you who love to set the room spinning every now and again, Cheers!
