Manhattan Cheers to a New Year

Every year thousands head to Manhattan to say goodbye to the previous 365 days and welcome in clean slates and new opportunities. Millions more make their own merriment at parties, entertainment complexes or in front of their own fireplaces. But no matter where your New Year’s Eve party takes place you can enjoy a taste of Manhattan. Let me introduce you to a party favorite. Ladies and gentlemen:

The Perfect Manhattan
1 oz. Bulleit Rye
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
2 dashes bitters

Stir. Add a couple of ice cubes. Rim tumbler with orange peel twist, then drop in drink. Garnish with a cherry.

You can always take a little of the whiskey bite out of the drink with a little simple sugar, honey or agave nectar.

We also recommend lots of glitter and your best party shoes.

It’s your New Year’s, make this Manhattan  — and celebration — your own.

Only the best in 2016!
