New Hanover County ABC
SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL BOURBON HERITAGE MONTH
Ginger Beer Bourbon Cocktail
2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey
1 ounce sweet vermouth
2 to 3 dashes aromatic bitters (We use Angostura)
Maraschino cherry, for garnish
Orange peel, for garnish
Fill a martini glass to the brim with ice so it chills while you make the Manhattan.
Add whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters to a shaker or glass with a few ice cubes, and then stir or gently shake. Do not over do it, you do not want the ice to water down the drink. Discard ice from martini glass then strain Manhattan into the chilled glass and garnish with cherry and orange peel.
2 Shots good quality bourbon
1 Shot triple sec
1 Shot cranberry juice
1 Shot fresh lime
Put everything into a shaker with ice. Shake, shake, shake. Serve in a martini or rocks glass with a slice of lime for garnish.
