- 1½ ounces WhistlePig Rye
- ½ ounce Orleans (or to taste)
- ½ dropper each of Urban Moonshine Maple and Original Bitters
- ½ to 1 teaspoon local honey simple syrup (or to taste)
- 1 WhistlePig-soaked cherry
Pour the liquid ingredients into a shaker together with four to five cubes of ice. Shake or stir. If you like your Manhattan up, strain into your favorite cocktail glass. If you prefer it on the rocks, pour the contents of the shaker into a highball. Those who like a “perfect” or dry Manhattan can leave out the simple syrup.
