Bulleit Proof Manhattan Cocktail
Michael's Genuine Food and Drink

On the menu at the renowned Michael's Genuine Food & Drink in Miami, this reinvented classic is a must-try for bourbon fanatics. The recipe cleverly replaces the typical sweet vermouth with the deep sweet-and-sour flavor of cherries, balanced by the spicy undertone of fresh rosemary and warmth of good bourbon.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounce jar Amarena Italian cherries or quality jarred cherries in syrup
  • rosemary sprigs
  • 4  ounces  Bulleit bourbon
  • 1/2  ounce  lemon juice
  • 1/2  cup  water
  • Ice

Directions

Strain the cherry syrup into a small pot and add ½ cup water. Toss in the rosemary and place over medium heat. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, remove from heat, and let the rosemary steep in the cherry syrup as it cools to infuse the flavor. Once cool, put the cherries back in the syrup and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 to 2 days.

Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, and 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of the cherry syrup in a shaker with ice; shake it up really well to break the ice into shards. Strain the cocktail into 2 chilled martini glasses. Spear a couple of cherries on 2 rosemary sprigs and use to garnish the cocktail.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
