#5. Aquavit Manhattan
“It excels at what the Scandinavians do, which is cope with a cold, long, dark winter. The aquavit is a little herbaceous, which gives it a great caraway and rye background.”
• 2 oz aquavit (like Linie)
• 75 oz sweet vermouth
• 25 oz cherry spirit (like Leroux Kirschwasser)
• 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Stir ingredients with ice, then strain over ice into a double old fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange twist or cherries.
