Manhattan Magic BUY


  • 2 oz Templeton rye (or your favorite bourbon or rye)
  • 1 oz Antica Formula (or, if you can't find this tasty stuff, use sweet vermouth)
  • 1 oz (about 1 spoonful) of Laura Ann's Manhattan Magic jam 
  • a dash of angostura bitters
  • Rye Soaked Cherries
  • Directions

    1.  Put the 1st 4 ingredients into a mixing glass, mix until the jam dissolves then add ice cubes.
    2. Stir well until chilled, strain into a chilled cocktail glass or serve on the rocks.
    3. Garnish with rye-soaked cherries.

    This is my own version of a jammin' Manhattan, and it's one of the most popular drinks at my cocktail parties. It was named for the restaurant I created it for: El Cid in Silver Lake, CA.
