This classic winter cocktail is based on the comforting sweet ’n’ spicy flavours of American rye whiskey.

Ingredients

  • 40ml American rye whiskey
  • 20ml sweet vermouth
  • 2 large dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Ice
  • A maraschino cherry, to decorate, optional

Method

  1. Stir the whiskey and sweet vermouth together over ice in a jug. Add the Angostura bitters.
  2. Strain into a martini glass. A fun, kitsch decoration here is a maraschino cherry.

This cocktail goes well with mini Yorkshire puds with smoked venison.
