We love bourbon cocktails in the winter, and black cherry manhattans have been a favorite for years. Because Red Stag bourbon is sweet, we go light on the sweet vermouth and a little heavier on the bitters for a balanced cocktail.
Jim Beam Red Stag Bourbon
dashes angostura bitters
maraschino cherry garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add Red Stag, sweet vermouth, and bitters. Stir until condensation forms on the shaker.
Pour into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry. Alternatively, strain into a cocktail glass filled with ice. Serve immediately.
