Like many classic cocktails, it looks simple on paper. Using just 3 ingredients, it must be easy to craft the Manhattan. Truth is, the fewer the ingredients involved, the greater the skill and discipline required. This winter, we’re taking this cocktail to the next level. It just might be the best one yet. There, we said it.

2/3 cup vermouth
1 oz cherry brandy
4 dashes orange bitters
4 orange twists and fresh cherries for garnish
Combine orange bitters, vermouth, brandy and rye in a mixing glass. Place 1 large cube ice in 4 rocks glasses. Pour cocktail into glasses, garnish and serve.
