Winter in Manhattan

"A wonderful winter weather treat. Tart cherry juice and Amaretto join the usual Manhattan ingredients for a deep and warming flavor."

Serves: 2


1 ounce bottled tart cherry juice

3 ounces Amaretto liqueur

2 ounces Knob Creek whiskey

1 ounce dry vermouth

¼ teaspoon blood orange bitters

2 fresh cherries with stems for garnish (optional)

Chill two cocktail glasses by filling with ice water. 

Combine all the ingredients, except the cherries, in a cocktail shaker with ice. Stir until thoroughly chilled.

Empty the ice water from the chilled glasses. Strain the cocktail into the glasses, and garnish with a fresh cherry.
