Port-O Manhattan

The Manhattan is a tried and true cocktail enjoyed throughout the year. Here in Central Oregon with the onset of fall, you might elect to change up the classic Manhattan to create a drink even more indicative of the season. By using tawny port in place of sweet vermouth, the traditional Manhattan becomes a bit more complex. I also exchange the orange bitters for Angostura bitters to add zesty citrus notes to the drink, which balances nicely with the buttery, oaky flavors imparted by the port.

2 oz C.W. Irwin Bourbon
1 oz port
1 tsp. maple syrup
2 dashes of Angostura or orange bitters
Bourbon soaked or maraschino cherries for garnish

Begin with a shaker tin filled with ice. Add all ingredients and give a nice stir with bar spoon until well mixed. Strain into a Martini or Coupe Glass. Garnish with bourbon-soaked (pictured) or maraschino cherries.
