I find myself in the best airline lounge on the planet after a full day of work in London. Thankfully they have a full bar and very capable bar tenders. This “Perfect” Manhattan ( recipe below) was the perfect ending to a English business trip and the best launch to a flight back to New York.
2 ounces bourbon whiskey
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
2 dashes Angostura or orange bitters
Maraschino cherry with a small piece lemon peel for garnish
