Barrel-Aged Manhattan Cocktaiils


Servings: Makes about 10-12 drinks.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 28 days

  • 2L charred oak barrel (Like this.)
  • 25 fluid oz rye whiskey (We're talking 750ml or a fifth here.)
  • 7 fluid oz sweet vermouth
  • 2 fluid oz Angostura bitters

  • Instructions:

    Into the oak barrel already seasoned according to manufacturer's directions, pour in the rye, sweet vermouth, and bitters (you did close the tap first, didn't you?). Plug with the stopper and make sure it's good and snug. Every 7 days, roll the barrel 90 degrees so as to make sure that the all the insides of the barrel give equal time to your sippin' liquor.

    After 28 days, pour 2.5 - 3 shots into a glass full of ice to stir and strain into a chilled glass; or kick it lazy like me and pour into a rocks glass with a few chunks of ice. Garnish with Maraschino cherries and maybe some orange zest.
