Friday Fare…"I'll take Manhattan".

Everything is crossed off your holiday “To Do List” and it’s time to sit back, turn up the volume on those Christmas tunes and enjoy all that you have accomplished. This weeks Friday Fare is just what  Santa ordered, a holiday twist on the traditional Manhattan. Who can say no to cherries and chocolate. Cheers!

BLACK FOREST MANHATTAN

MAKES ONE COCKTAIL

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CHERRY SYRUP:
1 cup sour cherry juice, plus more for rim of glass
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup kirsch (cherry-flavored liqueur)

1 tsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. superfine sugar
3 oz whiskey
4 dashes chocolate bitters
1 pitted sour cherry, to garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Make the cherry syrup: In a saucepan, bring cherry juice and granulated sugar to a boil; remove from heat. Allow to cool. Stir in kirsch. Chill.

2. Rim the glass: In a small bowl, mix the cocoa powder and superfine sugar. Pour the mixture onto a plate. Pour some cherry juice into a wide, shallow bowl. Dip the rim of a

martini glass into the juice, then dip it into the cocoa mixture to create a thin chocolate ring.

3. Make the cocktail: In a cocktail shaker 3/4 filled with ice, add whiskey, 3/4 ounces cherry syrup, and bitters. Shake vigorously until well-chilled. Pour into rimmed martini glass. Garnish with cherry.
