Three Cherries

Three Cherries • this painting is sold

Ms. Manhattan • signed and numbered print measuring 18" x 24".
(please see for more information on this print).

The Manhattan

Manhattans may be served sweet, perfect, or dry, with blended whiskey or bourbon, but the original was mixed with rye. The cocktail immediately supplied the well-heeled with a sophisticated way to slug down whiskey. The Manhattan will never overtake the Martini’s status, but it must be heralded alongside its gin counterpart in the peerage of great classic cocktails.

Makes 1 drink:

• 2 ounces straight bourbon
• 1 ounce sweet vermouth
• dash of Angostura bitters
• Maraschino cherry (two for me, please)

Stir the bourbon, vermouth, and bitters in a pitcher half filled with ice, or shake them with ice; then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

If you would like to purchase this 6" x 6" oil painting on stretched canvas, please email me. This painting is priced at $100.00 plus s/h.

Thank You!
