Red Stag Manhattan

So you know how I feel about flavored whiskey. You don’t need it if you have full bar with plenty of liqueurs. I could have easily made the drink with Cherry Heering, and if I wanted to I could have made my own cherry bourbon. There was something simple about getting a mini of Red Stag and trying it in a cocktail, though. It was rich and warming, not overwhelmingly sweet, with a lot of flavors to keep you interested.
  • 1 1/2 oz. bourbon
  • 1/2 oz. Red Stag
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
Combine all ingredients in a shaker full of ices. Shake and strain in a child cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
