Holiday Manhattan

Hurrah for the Holidays!

We had friends visit earlier this week, and we discovered that our youngest guest had a real knack for finding sea glass. 

Take a five-year-old to the beach at Harkness if you want to find the good stuff!

Also good? The Holiday Manhattan that DP stirred up. 

A variation on the Wakeman's Air, it's delicious...

2 parts Bourbon
1 part Punt e Mes
1 heavy splash of Becherovka
2 dashes Angostura Bitters


Shake with ice (I know, you think it should be stirred, but sometimes a little extra ice water in the drink is just fine), garnish with a cherry (Luxardo Maraschinos, if you have them), and serve to everyone who has been worn out by running around with children all day long.
The Becherovka provides all the flavors of Christmas, and you know you can't go wrong with the other ingredients. Enjoy!
