Spiced Manhattan with Smoky Cinnamon Stick


Add a smoky flavor to your classic Manhattan cocktail with a twist of cinnamon. This fall cocktail is made with bourbon, sweet vermouth, maraschino cherry syrup, and orange bitters.

You'll need these ingredients:

Light the end of the cinnamon stick and lay on a heat proof surface. Cover with an upside down cocktail glass. 

Add bourbon and sweet vermouth to a mixing glass filled with ice. 

Add the bitters and a drizzle of maraschino cherry syrup to the glass. 

Stir well and strain into a cocktail glass. 

Garnish with a couple of maraschino cherries and/or the burnt cinnamon stick, if desired.
