The Manhattan was actually a favorite classic cocktail of mine when I was in my twenties - probably because it used the Maraschino cherry liqueur, I loved Maraschino cherries a lot a few decades ago.
Recently I revisited this cocktail and poured it into my favorite Lolita Cherry Martini glass. Though bourbon is not one of my favorite alcohols I enjoyed it and it brought back a lot of memories of the seventies and my disco days! It also gave me another chance to use my Homemade Maraschino Cherries.
If you like the idea of martinis but prefer whiskey to vodka or gin try this classic cocktail out - maybe it will bring back some memories for you too.
