Carrol Cocktail

Yet another Brandy Manhattan style cocktail, the Carrol is closest to the original Manhattan proportions than many others. It is sweeter than most variants, having no added bitters, so the brandy and vermouth get all the attention. It's rich and rewarding. I'm featuring Mt. Defiance sweet vermouth from Virginia to give this recipe a sweeter and more of a local appeal.
  • 2 oz. brandy (Asbach Uralt used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth (Mt. Defiance used)
  • maraschino cherry
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherry.
