Classic Manhattan with Cherry Ice, featuring Catoctin Creek

We went back to the roots to refresh the greatest cocktail in the world – local rye whiskey, vermouth, house made bitters and some homemade Brandied Cherry Ice Cubes! Yum!

2 oz Catoctin Creek Rye
1 oz Cinzano Vermouth
4 dashes House made dark bitters (or Angostura?)
3 Brandied Cherry Ice cubes 

Mix the rye, vermouth & bitter with ice in a mixing glass. Muddle the cherry ice cubes and then pour cocktail over. Stir lightly and serve.
