The Chilly Maple Manhattan – a Toast to Surviving Winter

Chilly Maple ManhattanSeems like its been a tough winter on the streets of Manhattan. Every time we’d turn on the news it seemed like everyone was digging themselves out from another foot of snow.

Let’s raise our glasses to surviving winter and forgetting about gloves, coats and mitts until next year. It’s time to gather ourselves up and head for the patios, rooftops and cafes to share good times. So, in honour of spring here’s a variation on the classic Manhattan with just enough maple syrup to sweeten things up.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Maker’s Mark
  • 1/4 oz sweet vermouth
  • 1/4 oz maple syrup
  • dash or two of Angostura bitters

Preparation
Combine the bourbon, sweet vermouth, maple syrup and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake several times, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add a cherry on a pick for a garnish.
