Drink Type: Cocktail



The Makerís Mark Fashionable Manhattan was chosen as the grand champion at the 2006 Kentucky Bourbon Festival Cocktail Challenge.

Place the Angosturo Bitters in a cocktail glass along with a wedge each of lemon, lime and orange. Thoroughly mascerate the fruit in the bitters until fruit oils and bitters completely cover the inside of the glass. Empty the glass and set it aside. Add the Maker's Mark and Sweet Vermouth to a Boston shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 45 seconds to a minute and strain into the cocktail glass. Break one Marischino cherry into the glass and scrape the inside of the glass with a bar spoon to release the fruit oils and bitters. Garnish with a half slice of orange.
