Recipe// 3 Classic Cocktails

9:53 PM


Manhattan
 2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey, 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth, 1-2 dashes Angostura bitters,
 3-4 maraschino cherries with a dash or two of their juices too 
(if you want, no pressure—I like it sweet!). 
Combine all ingredients in a small mason jar, seal, shake and pour over ice.

Sidecar 
3/4 ounce triple sec, 3/4 ounce bourbon whiskey, 1/2 ounce sweetened lime juice 
(make your own or buy one—I used Rose's brand),
 a small squeaze of lime juice and garnish with a lime wedge.
 Combine all ingredients in a small mason jar, seal, shake and pour over ice.

Mint Julep
 2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey, 3-4 mint leaves (torn into small pieces),
1 teaspoon powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons filtered water.
Place the torn mint leaves, sugar and water in the bottom of your serving glass.
Use a small spoon to muddle them, basically smashing them together.
Fill your glass with some crushed ice, pour in the bourbon whiskey and garnish with a mint sprig.
