I’ll Take Manhattan

In The Nouveau Butch on January 7, 2013 at 8:48 pm


Whether you find yourself in a particularly New York state of mind, or you just really happen to love whiskey, I cannot recommend this cocktail enough.  Sweet, smokey, deep and rich, a Maker’s Manhattan on the rocks always sounds cool when you order it, looks great in your hand and tastes like a stolen kiss.

If you’re interested in making them great, here are the ingredients the NB suggests:

Maker’s Mark Bourbon WhiskeyImage

Add 2 Oz of this to a small rocks glass filled with, well, rocks.


Martini & Rossi – Rosso (Sweet Vermouth)- add 1 oz of this to that same glass.

And finally:Image

Luxardo Maraschino Cherries.  Take 3 of these out of the jar with a spoon.  Stir them into the drink along with whatever goo sticks to the spoon.

Relax and enjoy.  This, like life, is truly delicious.

  1. I couldn’t agree more, since this just happens to be my favorite cocktail and I always use Maker’s. One thing, though: what happened to the bitters? Also, I love your post “Ten Ways to Make Your Lady’s Day.” Great advice for butches, femmes, and everyone else!

    • I never MIND bitters in my Manhattans, but whenever I make them at home, I always skip that step! No good reason, just personal taste. Thanks Sublimefemme!

  2. You can make a Manhattan for me anytime! 😉
