Red Manhattan

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 2.5 ounces Absolut Kurant Vodka
  • .75 ounce Saint-Raphaël Apértif De France
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • Cherry (Garnish)

Stir with ice to chill and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the cherry.

Variation: If you can't Ind St. Raphael, Carpano Punt e Mes makes a wonderfully spicy Manhattan.
