Calls for a specific Irish Whiskey, Bushmills Black Bush, I happened to have a bottle and mixed one on up. Another great reason to mix a Manhattan, the ultra- smooth finish of the whiskey, the sweet of a good Italian vermouth and the absence of bitters caused this variation to stand out nicely.
Here we go -
- 2 oz Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey
- 1/2 oz sweet vermouth
You know the drill, stir with plenty of cracked ice ’till freezing cold, pour up into a chilled cocktail glass and enjoy. Maraschino cherry garnish. (add a couple dashes Angostura bitters, and you’ll have a Paddy Cocktail)
